A tomatillo husk.
Bill’s been closing down parts of our gardens in preparation for the colder weather. He’s harvested the last tomatillos, the last peppers, the last eggplants…
And – a zucchini. You can see it in the lower middle of the image. It’s pretty small, and it’s not going to get any bigger. So Bill pulled it.
Some things are still blooming, though.
These are sprawling all over one end of the back garden.
We’ve also got a lot of salad stuff – lettuces, spinach, and arugula. And one remaining kale plant, which looks like a palm tree with hormone issues.
Bill planted the garlic yesterday. Two rows in the back of the hard and another smaller row in one of the side gardens.
There’s still more prepping to do, but it’ll get done, bit by bit.
In the mean time, autumn marches on, turning the yard browns and oranges, reds and golds…clearing the path for winter whites and the eventual bright greens of spring.
What’s going on in your garden?
