The Last Cucumber

Coming to the end of the season. Picked the last Cucumber & Cantaloupe.  The last Zucchini was weeks ago. We had a surprise Cauliflower, I didn't even see it grow, it was among the Butternut squash, I was counting the squash and there it was, right in the middle. I harvested right away, not like the last one that I allowed to get buggy. I love Cauliflower, Fran roasts it with other veggies, great!

Beans are still coming in strong, Tomatoes both Plum and Heritage every day and an occasional Eggplant. The Hungarian Hot Peppers are a regular now, the big Peppers are turning red. By being lazy I have allowed the Fennel and Artichokes to go to flower.

Update: Fran has made four Butternut Squash Pies now, they get better and better.  We get two pies out of each larger squash, so, at least a dozen more pies.
