Here we are in the first third of Oct. and who gets tomatoes? No, it's me!

Got about 15 small ones. May get a BLT yet.
Have a great crop of marigolds, non-edible though. Bell Peppers any one?
Image008.jpg Not sure if we will get any broccoli or not. Onions planted this spring are coming back. Guess I'll take what we get.

Tractor port looks good. Looks like you moved in already.
Is that a smoker in the background?


Garden production at this time of year, sure is a bonus.

Good looking garden, Kenny. Mine have also recuperated from that extreme heat we both experienced. I hope our maters have time to ripen!

Like any kids, his GTs were naturally curious and wanted to see what all the activity was about.

looks good Kenny! don't give up on the broccli, they are a cold hardy plant and can take the cold down to the point the ground freezes.
I have brushed snow away and picked them, so long ast they don't freeze.
Your enough south of me if we had a mild early winter they might prodce into December for you.

My tomatoes are still going strong. Picked about a dozen yesterday & plants covered in blooms still! Most are smaller, but have a few sandwich size now & then. I've never had as many tomatoes so late in the year!

Yeah, they had to see what what was going on. They were getting rather rambunctious about where they were going to be this winter.
Will, that smoker has the bottom rusted out. Been around a few years, most of it visiting in Wichita. Caretakers didn't clean the ashes out, so it rusted through. Thinking about cutting it up for belly-blade parts.
JD, thanks for the info on the broccoli. They look to be making heads, so might get some yet. The onions sure are liking this cooler weather, too. But my mouth is watering for some fresh tomatoes, not sure if I'll get a BLT or not.

Great looking garden Kenny. Still looks great. Mine went down hill after the ground hog got to mine. My last tomatoes were last month. Hope your broccoli comes well.

Kenny, My smoker I think simular(brinkman smokin pit Pro) had a sheetmetal liner in it. Could you weld a piece of sheetmetal in and keep it going for a few years? I would'nt know how to get along without mine? I do need to make a new liner for it.

JD, I could patch it up, but with just Mom and I here it wouldn't get used that much. It's just too big for the two of us. It's a Char-Griller, with the cast iron cooking grates. It's about 15 yrs. old.

Proud to hear you getting them maters, I also picked about 9-10 small one today with a lot of green ones, also covered some of my best ones with plastic ( used some 16ft cattle panels bowed them over and added the plastic.) hoping for some for Christmas LOL.

I was hoping to completely redo the garden area this fall, but I hate to pull producing plants to do it. I want to do away with the raised bed, move the location and plow new ground. Maybe I can still get it done later on.
