Garden update for 9/11/17 begins with these grapes. They are the beginning of the harvest. This was a 4 gallon bucket. I will be making some juice, some raisins, and some frozen grapes. If the birds stay out of them, there may be about 5 times this many.
We have eaten a number of small personal sized cantaloupes. This one is a larger one that isn’t yet ripe.
I’m not sure what happened to the watermelon. Lots of leaves, but no fruit – it really fizzled.
I’m tired of cherry tomatoes and cucumbers and they are dying back, so we have started pulling them and putting in the winter vegetables. We still have a very few squash ripening as well. The weather man says cooler weather for the rest of the year. That is good. When the harvest comes, it doesn’t give you much rest. But it is so very welcome.
