I picked the last of my cucumbers, eggplant, poblano peppers and cherry tomatoes, then pulled the plants out and added them to the overflowing compost bins. Broccoli continues to produce little side shoots. I picked two lemons from my Meyers lemon tree, which is still outside.
Today's project today was to clear out the cold frame, fertilize and turn the soil, then and put the top panels back on. We replaced the old ripped plastic on the panels with some nice new green house plastic that I got by mail order. My experiment this fall is a couple of fluorescent lights in the frame. I have a nice tray full of seedling greens and there isn't enough sunlight any more to support growth. Still nice and warm, so I will see what happens.
