    Carl it sounds like you've had a great summer. We actually had a lot of hot, dry weather in my area, and most of my garden did not really thrive until later in the season, by which time there was not enough sun to ripen crops like tomatoes. I picked my last crops on the weekend. I had lots of baby carrots still in the ground and, since it's cold now, they are really sweet. I also had 2 remaining winter squashes. They were also baby sized but I'm sure they'll be yummy.

    I love your pictures. Thanks for sharing. How's your garden doing this year? I have tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers started in the house but will wait until I'm certain the last frost has come before I move them outside. I envy your growing season. Does it ever end?
