|Girl_Loves_Hydraulics||Well just an update my bonnie red germinated indoors and seems to be doing ok. My jalapeno is holding up well also. Its even dropping a couple peppers but definitely not like during high summer. My strawberries are well, but no flowers but putting off growth. This is ok with me...|

|Pawsed||I told a friend that next year I'm just going to grow dog food for us all! They get meat in addition to the veggies, though, and we rarely eat that. Not vegetarians, just not very interested in meat. As far as we are concerned, it's hard to beat fresh produce.|

Yes, we do. Our dogs get quite a few things from the garden in their diet, including broccoli, cabbage, yellow or butternut squash. Our 5 year old GSD tends to get pudgy, so we have to strictly limit his intake. So we give him a cup of green beans with each meal so he can at least fill his belly.
The dogs also pick their own raspberries and apples. I haven't been successful growing melons, but the older dog loves watermelon, too.

one tomato well worth it was the Peace vine and the Marzano .
sugar snap peas were productive beyond need .
Gold Marie - definitely -- best tasting bean .

Zone 6 here, too. I'm surprised that my garden is still hanging on. Some things are gone, but yesterday I gathered another dozen butternuts, a large bowl of green beans, a bushel of peppers (Poblanos and Big Jims) and a bowl of green tomatoes.
I also picked more raspberries and made raspberry cobbler for dessert last night. I think that may be the last of those, but I've thought that the last 3 times I've picked them. At this point they look pretty well depleted, so I may be right this time.
I've dug half the sweet potatoes and it looks like it's time to harvest the rest. I planted Beauregards and Georgia Jets, and the Beaus got burned with a cool spell several days ago. The Jets have held up better and are just now looking a little worn.
I picked a dozen fall cabbages already, and one broccoli. I'm not sure how the other fall plants will fare, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for those.
All in all, it's been an amazing run. The freezer is well stocked and garage shelves are loaded with filled jars. Butternuts are curing on the garage floor. I'm sure we will never get through all that we have put up.

Still hanging on here. No frost in sight yet. Tomatoes still setting fruit. Okra and Peppers have about had it and I am worried my brocolli wont flower but it is huge. All the winter veggies are growing.
Several Cantaloupes still on the vines. We harvested our first and was super sweet. I have a bunch of tomatoes. Waiting for everyone to get it done with so I can make some sauce. I keep putting the ripe ones in my freezer and will process them all at once.

|Girl_Loves_Hydraulics||Well everything is pretty dead now so moving to indoor. Hot pepper is still giving peppers, but definitely needs a bigger pot now. Strawberries recovered nicely from the land shark attack. Even got a couple more flowers that came outta nowhere. Just planted my bonnie reds, so hopefully I'll be sharing success about growing them indoors.|
