So soon? I almost always have tomatoes or something going until frost.

No frost here. I live in SW Florida so this time of year it's too hot for most tomatoes. Either they won't set fruit due to the heat or they succumb to blight, etc. due to rain and humidity. I will plant my tomato seedlings sometime between mid to end of September for my fall crop and then I will plant my next crop in mid-February for spring. I will have tomatoes all the way until about next June. In theory anyway, assuming I get my act together and get my seeds started this weekend. And fingers crossed no hurricanes this season!

My garlic harvest, the tiny bulbs were surprises that came up on their own from a missed head.

Nice! My garlic got dug up by the hens again. I now have the fencing I need. Maybe someday I will actually get my garden area a bit more protection.

I should have left the smaller ones in longer but the weeds in the garden are taking over and I afraid I wouldn’t find them later.

Patrice, I wonder if you cleaned out an area or even prepped a container of some sort, you could possibly replant the smaller ones???

I pulled a few of my own garlic yesterday and were about the same size. I left the rest of it for now to wait until the stalks started to brown a bit in the hopes of the heads getting a bit bigger. |em22|

OF, I could but I think I’ll just separate them and replant them later this Fall.

We dug a few of our potatoes this morning and then also gathered a little basket of the first ripe peaches. Both are delicious!

Thanks kbhlmh

FF enjoy those peaches, I will have no fruit except raspberries and maybe I can salvage a few apples this year. One of my cherry bushes died and the birds are stripping the others clean before they ripen. There are no cherries left on the dwarf cherry tree either. The peach and apricot didn’t flower and appear to be dying. I’m going to leave them up until next year to see if they recover.
