Look what I picked!

While fall is definitely here, fall in the south is comparable to summer temperatures in the upper north. It is in the low 80's with plenty of sunshine and night temperatures in the high 50's/ low 60's. My tomatoes and squash are still going strong!

Here is what I picked this week:

My lemons on my lemon tree finally started to ripen! I still have quite a few left on the tree that are somewhat green. I am going to make old fashioned lemonade with these!

I am thrilled with the Italian summer squash I planted this year. I am up to 100 squash harvested so far, including these.

This is the second picking I had from the chili peppers. There are tons more green ones! I expect I will pick these until the first frost (probably sometime in November). The green ones in the bowl below fell off when I touched them; I will set them aside to ripen.

Carrots are doing great, and the peas and garlic are up too. (Pictures next time.) The broccoli didn't germinate, I think the seeds were too old. I will go out this week and get some new ones at the store.

I do love fall in the south! This is the best time of year to plant bushes and trees. I plan on planting two more blueberry bushes before the month is over!
