Last weekend we spent about 2 hours closing down our community garden plot.  This meant pulling up all of tomato, pepper, eggplant, and kale plans.  It also meant pulling up all of the flowers we used for our wedding.

This summer’s garden was much more productive than the garden I had last year, the hot summer may have something to do with that.

Peppers (bell and hot)

This year we harvested about 30 pounds of peppers (both hot and bell peppers).  Last year we only harvested a couple of pounds.

Eggplant

This year I probably harvested about 40 pounds of eggplant.  Last year, I only harvest a couple of eggplant at the end of the season.

Tomatoes

The tomato plants were also very successful this year. We were able to make several rounds of pasta/pizza sauce.  Last year’s harvest was also successful but not like this year.

Flowers

As I mentioned above the flowers we grew did very well. Some of the zinnia plants were about 5 ft. when we cut them down.  We were able to make several bouquets throughout the summer.

Stay tuned for pictures and recipes…
