Fall temperatures bring out the gardening sweatshirts
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!!!
