I wanted my final Garden Wars photo to be a look forward. Here it is, people: my infamous compost pile, marinating for next year. Vegetable scraps, grass clippings, egg shells…oh my! Could there be future acorn squash, butternut squash, pumpkins or watermelon in there, like we had this year? Only time will tell…
Figs: nature’s way of saying I love you. We were amazingly blessed to buy a house with two fig trees…that made no figs last year. Lots of pruning and some fertilizer and now we have two trees full of figs. These two were the first ones to ripen within reach and got pulled off while the kid was napping so I could make sure to take pictures. Oh, and Ryan, I have enough to share if your tree didn’t produce.
Heirloom cherry tomatoes! These little beauties are called Black Cherry; these are delicious. The big one in the back, a Green Zebra. I have had mixed success this year with tomatoes, but these scrumptious lovelies are making up for quantity, with quality.
