Getting the garden settled in for the winter: rototilled about half and spread pine needles over it. It needs to be acidified annually.
I'm still harvesting tomatoes and carrots. New kale and collard leaves are coming out after caterpillars devoured the plants.
I'd give my garden a C grade for the year. Many things didn't germinate--beets, parsnips, spinach--and others just didn't produce, like cauliflower. I'm a little disappointed with Brussels sprouts, too.

Oh well. Like the typical farmer, "wait'l next year".

Ouch, Don. I know the feeling. My cherry tree split a few years back. I've never planted another one because I hated pitting the fruit.

Don, odd to see the snow when we are still getting temps in the low eighties. That doesn't mean we can't do a complete turn around and have a snow before the week is over.

Thanks, Daniel.  Good thoughts.  Not sure why I chose a Red Delicious in the first place.  I bought it on a whim, I guess, while visiting an orchard in South Hero on Lake Champlain.  The rooted portion of the tree will be an obstacle, unless I can get a backhoe up here.

I would be sad as well Don.

A pity, Don!

An early fall of dense snow overnight has taken my Red Delicious apple tree, planted as a whip in 1980.  Sad to see.  At age 36, it had been just coming into its own in shape and production. 

Our 20-year-old red oak, however, looks splendid.

Daniel, what's the name of the corn, that you said wasn't too sweet?

Randy, your raspberry wine sounds delicious.  When I win the lottery, I'll come visit you and maybe you'll give me a sip.

Thanks Daniel. I always love finding the gardening catalogs in the mail.
