First ones in, last ones out

Looks like we’re back where we started. I pulled the remaining tomato and pepper plants out of the hoophouse last weekend. The tomatoes were totally dead, the peppers were droopy – time to call it a growing season for those guys and move on. I’d hoped to winter-over a big bed of spinach and lettuce in the middle of the hoop house, but never got around to planting it, so that will have to wait until next year.

On the brighter side (literally – the west gets more sun) that late planting of greens from August is still producing a salad or two a week. Looking back, I would have to say the greens were the hoop house’s biggest success. Now I’m just riding out the last of them, and dreaming of February and seed catalogs…
