Anything left in the garden to pick??

Here in new york, Im making stuffed grape leaves today, so I went out in the garden, picked a nice bunch of parsley and scallions. I also noticed that the tomatillos that i thought would not get to full size, actually did. So I picked a bunch and will make Salsa verde tomorrow. The chard is still ok and some beets. Oh yeah, the jerusalem artichokes are extremely abundant, now I just have to figure out what to do with them . Other than this, the only thing I have left is to plan for next year.

Sounds like you have lots! I have a few green onions, a few carrots, and one sick-looking lettuce plant (it froze).

We just picked the last of the green peppers, green tomatoes, and Anaheim peppers. We just planted onions, for green onions, since they'll be picked before they get to a reasonable onion size.

A lot of my herbs are perennials here, so I'll have them all winter. I do need to harvest the fennel, the rest of the basil, and some of the lemon grass. Tomorrow will be 70* again, but I'll need a flashlight since it will be dark by the time I get home.

first tiem growing them and got a decent amount so far from the 2 plants i planted.

I cant start anything from the seeds. I think i put them too deep. so i get them in the cells.

I actually planted the broccoli which did really well and awesome and super fast along with teh brussel sprouts in the begining of the spring. the sprouts where in the shadier area. so they didnt get burnt out.

Pulled my pepper and tomato plants about a week ago. Basil at the same time. I'll have a lot of herbs that are perennials and can use them at least to Thanksgiving. Beautiful Indian summer this week. I'm off Wed so will pull the rest of my annuals and get my Pansies out of the pots and into the ground for Spring color. So said to say goodbye to the growing season :-(

I picked the last of the green peppers and broccoli. I've still got brussel sprouts and carrots growing like crazy. I usually pick brussel sprouts through the end of November when the snow is flying. They're so much sweeter when the frost hits. I picked the last of the onions last week.
