End of the Season

It's the end of another gardening season. This was a tough one because it was so dry and we had to water and water every day to keep things going. Yesterday we harvested all but the last of the brussel sprouts and pulled everything up for composting.

This was the first time we tried parsnips (which we love). The package said they needed a long growing season and a fellow-gardener told us to leave them in till after the first frost (which we did). Yikes -- these things look like giant mutant visitors from another planet. And nothing like what you see in the store. Can't wait to try them and see how they taste. For now, we're leaving them unwashed for longer storage. And yes, those are also the last of the peppers.
