|Swiss chard seedlings. This is my first year growing chard. Got my fingers crossed.|
|Kale. Perfect greens for soup and holds up well even in frost.|
|Carrots. I planted six different varieties. This is only my second attempt at carrots. I failed two winters ago for a variety of reasons. Not this year!|
While these pictures suggest fall, the figs and basil are still producing as if it is mid- to late-summer. This will be my second huge harvest of basil (I've got pesto coming out of my ears) and I'm pretty sure these figs will ripen before it's too late. The Heritage raspberries have also done pretty well despite my neglect, and of course those tasty gems get eaten well before any thought of a picture.
|I planted basil down the sides of my tomato beds for a companion crop. Still going strong.|
