Signs of Fall

This week saw the beginning of the end of my summer vegetable garden. The tomato plants were ready to retire. I was delighted that my eggplant had managed to produce one small eggplant. Unfortunately, someone else (or should I say something else--rabbit, raccoon, skunk, ???) had noticed the beautiful purple fruit as well. It is gone now. I was hoping to photograph it when I discovered its disappearance. Alas.

Cucumbers and tomatoes were the most prolific plants in the garden this year.

The twelve oranges on my dwarf tree continue to grow. Last year only one fruit set, so I am delighted with the increase in yield. The fruit will probably be ripe in December.
