Scorpio.....My son is putting his house on the market this spring.  With the kids grown and on their own, its too big for the 2 of them.  I will be looking for my own apt then, also.  I doubt there will be a garden available for me.  But if there's a patio, I'll be keeping a few container veggies, that's for sure.
I'll continue to check in here to see how my fellow gardeners are doing.

Had a serious frost midweek that took the leaes of everything down. Harvested the rest of the tomatoes and put them in a box in the corner of the living room to ripen. Most will, some won't.New England...Nov. 2015 - Page 2 Img_2018

Also brought in these roses. New England...Nov. 2015 - Page 2 Img_2020

Hope to harvest parsnips, carrots and leeks this weekend. Then I'll put most of the beds to sleep except for the greens.

CapeC....I love following the ongoing saga of your garden efforts and harvest.  You do so well with yours.  I hope the winter harvests continue for awhile.  Enjoy.

We too have been clearing the glasshouse & garden up ready for winter , it gives up all manner of small quantities of veg etc.

Perhaps you can use the tomatoes to make red & green tomato chutney CC.

We will soon be on our last jar of the batch that we made some 18 months ago .

Next time I make some I'll use jars a lot smaller than 1/2 a pint as the half pint jars take a bit of getting through . Wink

Yes, Plantoid, I've often noticed that you and I are usually on the same seasonal timeline. Not a big fan of chutney here, but I could make a green tomato salsa or chili I suppose.

Mom leaves to go back to FL tomorrow so we're making a giant pot roast for dins tonight and freezing the left overs for midwinter yumminess.  Pulled the few veggies this morning to add to it:New England...Nov. 2015 - Page 2 Img_2021
I'm still getting some flying saucer/man o'war shaped parsnips even with growing them in the earth instead of MM this year.  So strange.

Except for root veggies and greens the party is pretty much over here on the Cape. But there are always a few stragglers: New England...Nov. 2015 - Page 2 Img_2024

I love bumbles...so, do they die or hibernate or something? Wasps die, they are carnivores.

Hm, good question, SR... so I googled it. Looks like the Queen will gain as much weight as possible and then hibernate for the winter under a tree root or someplace like that. But maybe a beekeeper will jump in and tell us more. 

Drizzly day today as a cold front moves through, after 2 glorious days in the fifties. Got most of my yard work done and my compost pile is a compost Mountain. Don't you just love it?!

OK, so my neighbor is changing out her fall decorations to Christmas themes, and donated 2 wheelbarrows of squash to my compost pile today. The photos were taken AFTER I took in an arm load of Delicatas and Acorns heading for the oven: New England...Nov. 2015 - Page 2 Photo110

Almost all are in perfect condition.  Looks like I'll be canning up some sugar pumpkins next weekend.

Oh, my, CC...  Are those pie pumpkins I see?  I'd have to cut them up just for seeds, if not baking/canning!

Yes, AM!  They ARE pie pumpkins.  Probably Sugar Pumpkins.  In flawless condition. Many of them have a little round sticker on the bottom that says Incredible Edibles.  lol

I won't save the seeds because I can't grow squash to save my soul what with the SVB and the PM.  Even the resistant varieties don't perform well, the little fruits aborting before the flowers even open to be pollinated.
Sad
So...I'll can and freeze.
What a Face
I am considering saving some of those heirloom corn kernals though...see them in there?

Oh, yeah I do...  Didn't notice them before...

Okay, CC, so if you're going to can the pumpkin, make sure it's in cubes, not pureed!  You won't be able to get enough pressure in the middle!  It's just too thick for safety.

And you can peel the seeds & eat them!  They're wonderful!  Just time consuming....
