I imagine I say the same thing every year: “I can’t believe it’s already October,” and I imagine many other gardeners say the same thing. Typically, daytime highs near the beginning of October are in the mid teens where I live, with lows in the low single digits. Our first frost has been between October 10 and 17 over the past five years (yes, I keep track – doesn’t everybody?), but the long range forecast this year shows both highs and lows in the mid to upper teens for the next two weeks. So who knows. I’ve already pulled the tomatoes (they were looking pretty ragged…) but shishito peppers, lettuce and many annuals are still looking pretty good. One day at a time, eh? In any event here are six things in my garden still going strong. To see Sixes from other gardens around the world, feel free to visit The Propagator‘s site.
