Then John pulled up all of the stakes, etc. and mowed, I raked, and then he tilled the garden for me.
Meanwhile, I cleaned up all of the pepper plants, cutting them down some, weeding and fertilizing, then covering the ground with a thick layer of hay. I'm keeping these going until the first frost, which should be several months away for us. We've already harvest over 22 pounds of peppers so far this year! I'm also leaving several of the tomato plants just to eek out a few more until frost. I'll be working around those plants tomorrow, fertilizing and mulching with hay.

I'm having a very frustrating time trying to start plants for the fall garden - of all the seeds I planted a few weeks ago, I have ONE cabbage plant to show for it. Very frustrating. I'm going to try again, but this wasn't a good start. Sigh..... None of my tomato seeds came up - they may have been too old. I think I'll just toss all of these and buy a couple of plants for the greenhouse. We go with the flow...right?!
