With a frost predicted late last week it was time to get the rest of the produce inside. The winter squash that were curing in the sun were brought inside and weighed. Any peppers that were usable were picked. The chilis - Joe Parker New Mexico, Ancho, and Serrano - were put in the dehydrator. For sweet peppers there's four Mama Mia Gallo and a lone Jimmy Nardello that went into the refrigerator.
The Teksukabotu squash had an off year, for them, just over 15 pounds total. Last year they produced nearly three times that amount. The Metro Butternut squash did well this year with a total yield of 18 pounds (I had cooked two of them before this picture was taken). Considering the truly awful early summer weather and the extent of fungus infestation I can't really complain.
Then there's the sweet potatoes, about 20 pounds, which were featured in the previous post.

The grand total for the year - 330 pounds. That's within two pounds of last years total, although production came from very different vegetables than last year. This year the heavy hitters were cucumbers, with decent yields from squash, okra, beans and onions. The cole crops did very well, while tomatoes were a bust. There's always next year!
