Fall in Front

Sunflower head
Chives, grapes, rosemary, strawberry
Naranjilla, takes too long to fruit for my zone. Could have brought it in for the winter but I didn't. Wish I had.

The Celery did really well. I have a ton of it chopped and frozen in the freezer.
Lemon Grass, Fennel, Sage, Basil, Parsley
Tomatillos are productive little plants. I had soooo many of these.
Wonderberry, and Naranjilla.
The amaranth canes on the ground. These things were seriously tall.

Seed Collecting

Chires baby corn - I let them dry, scraped all the kernals off, and now they are ready for popping.
Basil seeds I think.
Lettuce seeds
Radish seeds
Watermelon Seeds
Fava Beans (good nitrogen fixer)
