Today is another rainy day in Central NY - with the potential for some great storms according to the national weather service. They've issued a tornado watch - hmmm. It's something to keep things interesting.
My garden still chugs along, with prolific green beans, determined tomatoes and patient pumpkins. Does anyone know if a pumpkin that has fallen off the vine will ripen? My peppers have perked up and decided to finally fruit and I have a dozen or so small bells that I'm hoping will "grow up" before the frosts come. My little tomatoes are hanging on and ripening on the sad, brown vines that have given up for this year. It looks like I should have another dozen small tomatoes pretty soon.
A friend told us this weekend that after their asparagus had bolted to bush after the first harvest, they cut it back the beginning of August and got a great second harvest through September. I'm intrigued and certainly going to give that a try next year!
