Post Irene Gardening

The tomato plants fell over and there were a few decomposing figs in the plot, but otherwise everything made it through the storm. I was expecting all my unripe cherry tomatoes to be on the ground, the plot to be flooded with a foot of water, and the gardening season to be over. We were spared!

My Mystery Melon that popped up in the corner of my plot continues to grow. Can anyone identify this guy?

The bell pepper plant has decided to start producing, just in time for fall weather.

I've been dead-heading the sunflowers and getting great successive blooms.

Tomatoes, basil, and a fat carrot for salads were gathered Sunday after the storm blew through.

Beets, beet greens, a funny looking carrot that didn't taste so great, and some figs were harvested yesterday.
