Temperatures changed dramatically over the past week. A couple of nights the temperatures dropped low enough to kill or negatively affect warm weather plants. The peppers that produced so well this year are finally finished. I picked all the remaining peppers this afternoon.
Last week my parents came to visit. We spent some time working in the garden. We were able to pick two pints of raspberries.
We also set up a couple of low tunnels and cold frames to protect plants to allow them a chance to grow.
The picture above is the largest sized low tunnel. The plastic pictured was a bit short on one side. Today I added another layer of plastic to cover the hole.
I have a mystery plants under this tunnel.
The cold frames are covering cabbage and cauliflower plants. I find it fascinating how little sun can warm the low tunnels and cold frames. WIth just a few minutes there is condensation on the inside. Hopefully, this will provide enough warmth to the plants to a place where I can harvest them.
The final crop harvested last week was the tomatillos. I have not done much with them all year. We picked a good crop, enough to make a batch or two of salsa.
After a busy afternoon working around the Micro-farm I am ready to call it a day. What have you been working on?
Enjoy this season, learn from last season, and look forward to next season.
