|SOME OF OUR RED BELL PEPPERS, STACKED ON THE PLANT |
AND ABOUT TO TURN A BRIGHT CRIMSON
But even more interesting are the garden treasures we find when we least expect to, well after we though we had harvested the last of them. Like this stealth zucchini:
|A STEALTHY FELLOW INDEED!|
We found a yellow summer squash, way past its peak season.
|A LATE BUT TASTY FIND|
|NEVER TOO MANY BUTTERNUT SQUASHES!|
This unexpected bonanza of green and yellow squash, combined with tomatoes that had ripened indoors, the bell and frying peppers still on the vine and the onions which we had picked a month ago allowed us to make (with ground beef, cheese and garlic) a favorite one skillet meal known in these parts as "Wot from the Pot".

But these are not all the surprises the garden still holds, there are red potatoes still in the soil, and some Lima beans yet dangling on the fence.
So never give up on the garden until the last bit of fall clean up is complete. You really never know what you might find!
