Mrs. Gilmore said that they had cleaned out the garden because of the forecast of frost for this weekend. They harvested the peppers and the brussel sprouts and the cabbages and a lot of spaghetti squash.
They also had lots of pumpkins.
Do you have to harvest anything before the frost? I need to take cuttings of my sweet potatoes. I put them in water to root them, then plant them in flower pots and grow them as house plants over the winter. Next spring I will put them back into the garden, as I have been doing for about ten years. In a week or two I will dig them up and see what is under the ground.
Update: I had orginally written that 10-10 was the last farmers' market. I talked to the people at the farmer's market this morning (10-10-09) and they said they would be back until the end of October. Gilmore's, who is the largest of the vendors there, is quitting after this weekend.
