Went ahead and harvested some maters today. Still got a mess of green ones on the vines that will be ready in the next week or so. Will wash them and try one later. Should be good!

I gave up since been so very busy and unable to find time to tend things.   

This year producing lots of bio mass and mulch.

Didn't have anything in my garden since it all pretty much died, but my peach tree certainly gave me some sweet peaches this year at least :)

Getting a lot of tomatoes and runner beans but once again I went OTT and overplanted. That means my courgettes and squashes are suffering and I am not getting a lot from them. Corn is doing well and have 10 ears waiting to mature. Its a popcorn variety so lets see what that brings!

Got a lot of kale but its easier getting blood out of a stone than it is convincing my family its nice to eat - just steamed with balsamic vinegar, lovely!

Cucumbers and cucamelons are coming on but I have to learn to be patient and not over plant again next year.

Nice @fatboy! I really wish I had planted more this year. Besides tomatoes the only other thing I planted was some mint which has pretty much come and gone. I only had small pots for them so they didn't grow to their potential but they kept my porch smelling great! I also tried to start some peppers from seed however the seeds never germinated. I put them in soil and kept it moist and in the sun but they never sprouted. Was looking forward to some (late) peppers.

Hopefully next year I'll get started at the proper time and have a better garden.

Kale like most in the collard family is really a colder weather plant.   We grow both well past frost dates and depending on winter some years through January.

Collards are best picked after first frost, allegedly.

Kale and collards are alright mixed up in a smoothie.  I eat them like salad and like spinach.

Over here currently have a lemon tree, lime tree and a mandarin tree all grafted, giving lots of delicious fruit. :)

I learnt a lot from miniature fruit orchids and grafting from YouTube vids, though I won't post what it is, as I don't want to come across as a spammer.

Cherry tomatoes (Mixed from red, yellow, orange, green.), green beans, eggplant (Black Beauty) and plenty of swiss chard (Every variety one can purchase.) :)
