    We went to the vegetable gardens this morning and picked four tomatoes, four bell peppers, and lettuce. We still have lots of tomatoes and peppers, and no frost predicted for quite a while. I may open a produce stand!
    Zigs, our garlic is up also! I checked it this morning and it is popping through. I love growing garlic--it is practically fail-safe. Yours is ahead of ours, but I'll celebrate whenever I can.:smt109

    Our tomato and peppers plants have faded and died now that we're getting regular frosts. :( I guess I'll just have to wait until spring to plant more.

    Thats amazing MG! I only have 4 garden tomatoes left on my windowsill, the frost has already taken the plants.
    But on a positive note, I am still picking kale and swiss chard!

    Nightly frost now. I have chillies in a tunnel still. Outside I have various brassica types, chicory, chard, leeks, ruccola (loads, self seeded from organic seeds. Leaves up to 25 cms and tender and crispy too.) beetroot, carrots. I still have a couple of strawberries in a sheltered place, as well as raspberries that far exceed in deliciousness anything that I have ever tasted. They are so sweet for raspberries which just brings their raspberryness into your palette in an amazing explosion of flavour. I have loads of leeks. I can harvest ruccola and leek all winter and kale, except when there is too much snow.

    Nothing less than magnificent, Odif.
    The lyrical style of posting this time really expresses how pleased you are with your accomplishments.
    Do you think that the unusually delicious flavour of your raspberries this year is related to events of this season or some other factor(s)?
