Last of this garden
Yes this is the same little garden plot, about 6 feet long, which used to be against the fence. (Fence was removed last week, and is due to be replaced with a nice wood one) And it also held my beautiful tomato plants, and a "long bean" plant for much of the summer.
I'm sitting here eating my last tomato in luncheon salad. It has been in the fridge for a week or so, but still tastes good.
The tomato plants all rotted and needed to be pulled out completely a few weeks ago. I picked the last ones that didn't have mold inside, ripened a few on the windowsill, threw out those that rotted. Such a great help for the compost.
I froze some of my long beans...which turned out to be tender and delicious. I wasn't very timely on picking them at their peak, so missed having as much crop as I could have.
Gardener Barbara is learning what her limitations are. So this winter I'm trying more yoga, and maybe next spring I'll be able to be on my knees more. And get up without so much difficulty.
