I spent most of this morning blending tomatoes to freeze and chopping up green peppers. The peppers were very small, but we still ended up with a good amount, about 2 medium freezer bags full. I harvested 14 more leeks, washed them, and will chop them up tomorrow.
R took down the corn stalks and removed the pumpkins from their vines.
My poor little eggplant, with shriveled up leaves and no hope of producing anything I can harvest, still stands in its raised bed!
Many of the flowers have seeds or seed pods ready to collect. I`ve gathered some calendula, Giant Swiss pansy, rose mallow, and Scarlet Flax seeds to dry. Lots to trade and still have some left to plant next year.
