This is the last harvest of the year. No, this is. Actually, there’s one more.

I thought this was pretty much the last of the garden produce, aside from the odd tomato (and then the lemongrass stalks I harvested while transplanting the plants into indoor pots for the winter):

But when we cleaned up the tomato bed in late October, we ended gleaned plenty more, some with more appealing looks than others, plus a few more peppers:

The fall peas, planted in August, were still there, and we’d noticed the¬†white flowers. But we’d given up on any actual pods. Guess the Brit planted too late, we said. No bees around to pollinate, we decided.

And then we spotted this, while mulching leaves for the compost bin. I think there may be about three pods.

Lesson learned. Plant in July if there is room in the bed. Otherwise don’t bother.

  1. I find that cherry tomatoes are the most likely to keep producing until it really freezes. The bigger tomatoes can’t seem to ripen without more sun, but the tiny ones are bountiful. We usually have them right up until Christmas.
