    It is end of the garden season, actually it ended in the heat of the summer. It gets so hot that everything gives up, including me. But I had some volunteer squash come up and produce and the kajari melons reseeded. The butter beans never quit and the tomatoes regrouped for a last fling. This is what I picked yesterday. I even got a couple of eggs from my molting hens. Not a bad haul for a give up on garden!

    I picked a volunteer squash today. It has survived several frosts that took out the zucchini plants. This one is a Lebanese White Marrow squash. @seedcorn have you rolled up your first snowman yet?

    Tomorrow night it will get down to 25 degrees, so I picked what was left in the garden.

    The tomato vines are loaded with little green tomatoes. I picked the bigger ones.

    I picked mustard greens. I'll finish picking tomorrow.

    The collard greens are looking good.
    I let the sheep in to clean up in September and they chomped off the collards, but they have sprouted back out. Time to pick them too!

    The tomato plants went dormant in the heat of the summer. When it cooled off, they put on new growth and started blooming. They have survived several frosts, but I don't think they'll make it past tomorrow night.
