Garden report: All done

We took advantage of a recent weekend's mild weather to clean out the garden. It's sad to see the empty beds out there now.

Overall, it was a pretty good year. Couple of gallons of green beans (since the pole beans came in late, I was picking beans into the first week or two of November.)

The last of the green tomatoes are ripening now ... neat to have fresh tomatoes with salad after Thanksgiving.

It was a very good year for peppers. The cayenne produced enough that I won't be needing to plant any next year!!

We also dispatched one of our two pumpkins. This was a smaller one, so it only made about 6 cups of puree. The other Mr. Pumpkin was roasted and produced 10 cups of fruit.

I'm looking forward to some pumpkin soup!
