Did you know that fire ants love raised garden beds? Nasty, bitey little creatures! If only I could figure out a way to kill them all….
I guess this is what I get for pulling out their delicious Blue Cream Cherry tomatoes. Sigh. One tiny ant bit me twice in less than a half inch of thumb. Boo.
So – it was time to end the great tomato experiment of 2018. We still had fruit on the plants, but they were all getting ruined before I could pick them by the darned bugs/worms/other disasters. So, it was time to call it quits and lop off their heads! (overly dramatic much?)
Look at all that lovely space for fall/winter crops! Woohoo! Note that the eggplant and peppers are still going strong, so those didn’t get yanked out of the ground. Look at the pretty orange pepper!
Don’t forget the bazillion Aji Dolce peppers getting ready to be ripe. I LOVE these peppers! All the flavor of a Habanero and none of the heat! Thanks Bio-Way Farm for this one!
I’ve pulled out a bunch of fall seeds to consider. Now we just have to decide what to grow!
