There are frost warnings in the county East of us for tonight. The daytime temps have been around 60 degrees F for the last few days.
The garden didn't do so hot this year. We had another groundhog that kept eating everything i planted. Mainly the cucumber, bush beans and squash plants. Then there was a plague of squash bugs that took out the ones that survived. I got a lot of sweet peppers again this year, some okra too. The potatoes did very well. I have been digging them up little by little.
Summer Squash and two types of Okra:
It was a cool spring and a cool summer. Most years in late August we have a string of very hot days, i think we only reached 90 or above two times. There were plenty of days in the 80's but nothing super hot except for the days when it was so humid it felt like it was in the 90's.
The weeds really took over after the rain messed up the tomatoes. I sort of gave up trying to juggle time off, house cleaning, being too tired and achy from working and rainy days when i really couldn't get anything done outside. The rain was strange this year too. It didn't rain often but when it did, it was torrential and we got a few inches at a time. I can handle working outside in light or steady rain but not in downpours.
I'm expecting an interesting winter....
