Farewell Summer 2010

2010, year of the Green Tomato
Our Community Garden Plot, September 18th
Summer, you are officially over at 8:09 this evening…it’s about time! Summer, you let me down, I know I usually complain about your hot spells, the seemingly endless hand watering needed to keep my potted gardens looking fresh, and our homes lack of AC. But record rain falls, record low high temperatures…Summer, this year, the only good to come from you was a bumper crop of snap peas! No thanks for the GREEN tomatoes.

OK, I can't say only bad things about Summer, 2010...I have picked a few ripe-ish tomatoes, eggplant, our first handful of green beans, plus lots of cucumbers & tomatillos.
