Friends, neighbors and co-workers have been the beneficiary of the abundant tomato crop (especially the Sun Sugars) and the hot peppers.
Due to lack of space, the melons were planted late. The vines look healthy so if we have a late fall and the raccoons don’t find them we should have Sugar Baby and Charentais melons. Both are short maturation.
The cutting garden has been a playground for butterflies, hummingbirds, robins, cardinals and a cute little black and white bird I haven’t identified. As my husband and I look toward retirement in a few years I think the potager will change, perhaps it will be more of a habitat for the birds and butterflies.
