harvest time

yesterday, on the last day of summer, marilee and i brought in the harvest from our community garden.
considering that we turned the soil and planted mid-july, we are really pleased with what we got. the potatoes, which filled all of one plot were our most successful crop. and with another month of growth next year they will be much bigger (although i do love the tiny potatoes). we got lots of peas (the one lucy helped to plant on her summer visit) and some lovely cabbages. we left the leeks and a squash (of some kind) in the ground hoping they'll still get a bit bigger before the heavy frost. and next week we'll be planting our garlic.

and begin planning for next year...
