This is well-timed, as I can use a break from our own tired looking gardens. Aside from a few Sungold plants, the tomatoes are gone. Eggplant are starting a nice rebloom, which will provide some good fall fruit. And peppers are going wild - in fact, my main garden task at the moment is working my way through a major hot pepper seed save. The big garden is really tired - beans, squash, melons are all just about done. It was a good year; a hot year, and an exhausting but rewarding one as well.
Things are getting busy - I am about to sign a contract for my first tomato book, am about to write a tomato article for The American Gardener, and will be developing a few workshops for the Cultural Heritage program for West Point on the Eno park for next winter and spring. New career, here I come!
