Tomatoes -- before and after!
And one more post! Now that IÂve gotten my pictures downloaded, IÂm getting caught up here!
Here are my last 4 tomato plants before I cut them down.
The first plants I cut down I just cut off the individual stems of tomatoes, but then I decided that the way I stored them last year would actually take up less room, so the last four I cut off all the foliage again, then cut them off at the base, rubberbanded the stems together, and hung them in the garage again.
Here they are!
And hereÂs whatÂs left of the garden this year! IÂm standing where the tomatoes were, and thatÂs the Parsnips, beets, and carrots on the left, with swisschard on the right, the compost "bin" on the far end, and the perpetual purple violas that I let reseed wherever they want to. For anyone who doesnÂt believe just how small my garden is, now youÂve seen it!
I still wish summer wouldnÂt be quite over! I so love being able to sit quietly out in the backyard and doing things which, if I were being paid to do them, IÂd consider tedious and boring! But in my own yard, on my own time, at my own pace, I love doing them. ItÂs so peaceful, relaxing, being one with the earth!
Ok! Enough philosophizing! ItÂs fall and I love the rustling leaves too!
Happy fall everyone,
