Harvest Monday & Happy Labor Day

Hello to all my fellow bloggers!! I know...I have been MIA for the past two weeks. There has just been so much going on around here....even the garden was neglected!!

The tomato plants are actually looking better then they did a month ago. Their fruit production has slowed down. However, they are still producing quite a bit. I harvested almost 30 lbs in two weeks. I think that it would help if I would water them every once in awhile. We haven't had any rain here for weeks.

The bell peppers did not do as well this year as they did last year. (Some watering may have helped them too). I did harvest almost a pound and a half in the past two weeks. The eggplant are still producing and have still have some babies on them. I think that I will get quite a few more before it gets too cold for them.

The most neglected plants have been my purple pole beans. They were not picked for over a week. So, several pounds went in to the compost bin. Some of my dry beans are starting to dry already. I think they will be completely ready in about two weeks.
