I put my vegetable garden to bed several weeks ago. It was the worst garden I’ve ever had, and I’m glad to be done with it. Now I’m cleaning up the flower beds. We are still picking raspberries, however. Temps have been in the low 50s at night, 60s during the days, although this week we had two 80* days. We’re on the river, so our temps are a bit more moderate than areas just a half mile away. I don’t see any frost forecasts for the near future.
We returned last night from a two day excursion. Our gardening covering had blown off, but the plants were ok. My husband covered it again after we got back, and the plants did well although it got down to 30F elsewhere in the area. We’ll see if we get any more tomatoes.

I have had 6 or 7 tomatoes from my one volunteer tomato plant. I’ve eaten two or three and they were great! The Chinese chive seeds are all full grown and blowing off. I should remove the seed stalks and try eating the leaves again. I gave up cutting them when the flowers were in bloom.
Some of my rosemary has a bad case of scale. I sprayed soap and water in the early summer which didn’t stop the infestation, and now I am doing oil sprays. I hope the plants survive the winter but from past experience the weakened branches are more likely to die. I am going to take two small plants inside for the winter. They are in pots.
