The leaves are already changing.
Yellows and reds are starting to poke through the green leaves on the trees. They are appearing a month early.
And, one red poking through my green garden.
I noticed that one of my cherry tomatoes is finally ripe. One. lol.
My eggplant has two more blossoms and one little purple bulb growing on it. My pepper plant has a blossom, and I was able to pick one yellow squash.
I am getting a bit nervous about the blossoms only now forming on my warm weather plants as the leaves are beginning to change and autumn nears. I am getting the paper bags ready for my tomatoes, as I don't believe I have time to leave them on the vines to ripen.
I guess I just have to gain more experience with gardening. The timing of planting being one of my weaknesses is a zone issue and an issue of unpredictable New England weather. I plan to use some containers to shield seedlings from excessive rainfall in the spring and make some other minor changes. This is the second season I've lost plants to spring rains. But, if I wait for the rain to slow, it would be too late in the season to bother planting a garden at all.
I am thankful for the volunteer tomatoes. They more than made up for my lost plants, even if they are still only green.
With the sun shining brightly this past weekend, my better half and I tried to plan where we will be moving our second bed to. If we can get enough cinder blocks, it will be bigger, yippy!! Our only issue is leaving enough room to be able to get in and out of the shed. Hopefully, we can get started on moving and filling it soon, so we will have less to do come spring.

I can really tell that you care for your garden Beeker. Good luck with the second bed.
Oh dear, we are experiencing the same seasonal anomaly--things finishing-up a month early.
Thank you, Frank. We'll see how it goes.
You are most welcome, meid.
