Closing Time: Backyard Garden

Last Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m.
Last weekend was the start of fall clean-up and the Scott Ranch. Though our thoroughly "adequate" harvest of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers came later in the season than we had hoped, the garden was not a complete failure this year. I suspect that the variety of tomato that we planted was not as hardy as in year's past, as they did not seem to last as long once they had been plucked from the vine.

Last Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.
 Despite our having kept a small garden for the past six(!) years, each summer is like starting ll over again, as we'll try new things, each with varying degrees of success. We were not too adventurous this year, but we also lacked much f the time and energy necessary to really manage anything beyond the traditional hearty plants.
