one bell pepper. some of pepper plants were engulfed in tomato plants and didn't get a chance to grow until i moved them late in the summer. oops. this is the only bell pepper we got as a result

other types of peppers

and the last of it, which i picked today. we'll probably get a few more small broccoli shoots, and some kale leaves here and there, and a few more big heirloom tomatoes. what a successful season! next year i'm getting more squash and more eggplant! i'm determined.

I'm in awe at the variety of vegetables you were able to grow! I only have an apartment patio to work with, but you have inspired me to start a tiny herb garden next summer.

That's a LOT of tomatoes!

Quick question, is your vine-sleeve on your left or your right? It switches in a few of the photos.

this is really unbelievable to me. I'm super jealous.
I haven't had any real gardening luck, ever. But I've never gotten the opportunity to give it my all, either. I've always just had porch gardens, except for one time (two times? now I don't remember) when I had a community garden plot. It was hard to get myself all the way over there to water and weed frequently enough and I really didn't know what I was doing, either.
I might try again next summer, or give it a rest for a few years. I'm not sure. Last summer I just planted flowers. I got so busy though, that by the end of sumemr they were all dead from lack of watering. It was sad. But pretty much, for the last six months solid, I have been booked just about every minute of the day from dawn until past dusk. So that's my excuse!

ANyway, that all looks super delicious.

for the first time in my life, i have space for a garden outside of my house, and i'm REALLY excited, but have no idea what i'm doing. i was wondering if you had any reading suggestions to help me learn how to garden that I could check out over the winter.

thanks, ramsey!

what a bundle!

and i love the fact the photos also chronicle your pooch in a way with the changing positions. i especially like the pose in the photo for 'here they come' where he's doing his statue impression :)

More 'matos! more kale! more stra'dies! (Lena exclaims!)

Loved the photos of the summer harvest - including the stillife with Rover in the background.

Glad the garden was such a huge success.
