I have made my final harvest for summer vegetables. Oh, not everything, though! I have cabbage and broccoli, radish and carrots planted, but they won't be ready until sometime later this month or in December. The cabbage is usually ready for New Year's. The Asparagus beans didn't make quick enough, I planted too late. I love this bean, though, and will plant it again. It will be in the 30's tonight, so I'll cover the tomatoes, but more than likely, the beans will be done for, along with the zinnias and eggplant. The bell pepper may make it-sometimes does, sometimes not.
I've checked into my past garden diaries, and we're right on track. Last year, we had our first temps in the 30's a week earlier. I will need to take cuttings of the Morning Glory tree, because it will start to wither-and so will the Angel Trumpet. Well, that's how it goes!

I don't know how to remove the date from it, and it wouldn't be allowed according to the rules-as if that mattered.
Hummingbird, they are Asparagus beans, that is all I know. I've made a few, and I just love them raw, or just lightly saute'd in olive oil with garlic. I could eat them every day!

Where does one get asparagus bean seed? I am trying a new one this fall, thanks to my gardenting neighbor. Two wks. ago I sowed spinich--it's poking it's noses out already, will get covered with leaves, and will be ready for harvest first thing by March. Makes beautiful leaves. Sow in south side beds for earlier harvests. Good luck. Also will try romaine lettuce this wk. I'm in SE Mo.--where about is YOUR garden? Bye for now.
