The tomato plants were thrown into the woods. I don't like putting them in the compost bin because it may not get hot enough to kill the pathogens inside the plants.
This picture shows some of the raised beds. Two of the beds have a young cover crop of field peas and oats. The bed on the right has a couple rows of bush beans. It will be planted in spinach and garlic in October, for overwintering. The bed on the left had the tomato plants and still has peppers. Before planting the oats and peas, I had to come up with a rough plan for next year's garden so I knew which bed would get the overwintered plants.
Speaking of beans, after several weeks of no beans, since the pole beans are long gone, those 2 rows of August planted Provider bush beans gave me the first picking of beans. It's sure nice to have fresh beans again!
Except for a few vines on the trellis, the winter squash are mostly done. It's been a difficult year for winter squash here. All of the first plantings died from wilt, as did many of the second plantings. Finally, the seeds that were planted in late June survived and set squash, better late than never I guess. Everything looked good until about two weeks ago when another disease overtook them. The Butternuts growing near the trellis have a shot at maturing, but the ones left on the ground will probably not ripen, since the rest of the plant has died.
There's still 2 cages of Plum Regal tomatoes hanging in there. There's not enough to can, but I could probably make a couple of pints of refrigerator marinara, if I could find the motivation.
