This Brussel sprout plant is almost 6' tall now, I've never had one get this big... crazy how some things thrived this year while others struggled so badly... even the smaller plants are loaded with golf ball size sprouts
And probably the last big pull from the garden (winter squash not pictured) ... Cherry tomatoes, sweet peppers and one eggplant are hanging in there and I may get a bit more off them still but pretty much everything else is all done after our frost a few days ago
I'm keeping some watermelon, little leaf cuke, yellow wax beans, principe tomato's (from one amazing plant...still going and it's huge) Lettuce seeds of various flavors and jalapenos.
Spread out all my planter dirt that I could and seeded with crimson clove...which is up!
Planted hairy vetch in the sweet potato beds............and that's up!
Both these make cool flowers and the crimson clover is nice enough to put in a vase.
Tomato beds that are finished got planted with beans......followed by crimson clover 2 weeks later....all up.
All beans are sacrificial at this time, they'll winter kill before making beans, die and act as a mulch for the clover. All worm food come spring. Still got a bunch or tomatoes out there but anything that comes in at this point is gravy...literally!
I use a somewhat sandy/loamy mix normally, this year I mixed in a little more organics into it, they seemed to grow well! Was about 1/2 sand/loam, other half rich compost. Keeping it well drained is important. Slightly acidic I like a pH around 6.
