Die heart gardeners don't let a dip in temperatures slowdown their gardening activities! With September in our rear view window, it is time to gather in those late season vegetables and fruits. The Umatilla County Master Gardeners are still hard at it and yesterday I catch a few of them in the act of gardening at the Hermiston Station Demo Garden! They noted that the pounds have dropped off, but there are stills some high quality and tasty veggies come out of the garden.
Their garden weekly take was:
40 lbs tomatoes, 8 lbs banana peppers, 8 lbs jalapenos, 5 bell lbs peppers, 30 lbs cucumbers, 2 buckets of flowers, and 3 lbs eggplant!!!

This week was our end of the season Harvest Party and Cookout hosted by Keith and Mary Harris in their home south of Pendleton. How much fun it was to visit about our summer adventures both in and outside the garden! Keith shared his wonderful catch of halibut and salmon from his trip to Alaska. Others shared beautiful food creations from their gardens.
On the way home I stopped at McKay Reservoir to catch some sunset pictures. The best sighting of the evening was the moon rising above the water.
