End of the Season

So we have come to the end of the growing season. I have no cabbage or Brussels sprouts to show for it. The cabbage moths were extremely reproductive this spring/summer and feasted heartily on my harvest.

The potatoes and tomatoes were the big winner again this season. Close runners up were the banana peppers and eggplant. The squash and zucchini started late and did not produce a lot of fruit. I’ll admit that I’m a wee bit salty about my lack of squash.

The groundhog just about massacred the tree and the cucumbers. Compared to the 50 or so cucumbers last year, 2 is a huge let down.

Pulling up the dying plants is not the part of gardening I look forward to. Maybe someone will help me.
