The lemon verbena is doing fantastic. It is not frost resistant though. I planted it in the soil because it was dying in a pot.
Gathered two more tomatoes and a bunch of padrón peppers, plus some others.
With the hurry of work in the house before we move, I have been neglecting the garden. Not that much is happening anymore.
I was surprised to harvest these tomatoes today, and also three more ornamental pumpkins that I didn't take a picture of. There's two or three more butternut squashes growing, yay! U hope it is not too late.
The piquillo pepper is finally covered in fruit, very late, but I hope they ripen. I'll keep an eye on them.
The curcubitas are getting roya (I forget the English right now, a white moldy thing) because it's too damn wet. Just the two pumpkins seems like it's gonna be.
The tomato that fell off appears to have broken at the beginning of the stem so today I removed everything. I'll probably plant something else in there tomorrow.
The sage is doing great.
I simply don't find the time to post about the garden. I probably have it, but I don't find it.
This tomato plant fell due to its weight in tomatoes. Slugs (veritable plague this year, with all the rain) got at it. Many tomatoes have holes and have become snack-houses.
No matter, we still have more tomatoes than we can eat. Not so courgettes. Next year we should plant them higher up or somehow make the surrounding area drier. Perhaps grit.

|This one I think is Montserrat.|

|Cucumber for pickling. I have a feeling it will get eaten.|
I put the gifted Stevia in an empty terracotta pot, shading the Clematis (Joe), which after losing its flowers a long time ago, is growing many new shoots and leaves:

I love Pak Choy. I had these seedlings getting leggy behind the window. In a few days outside on the windowsill with a larger pot, they've become much stronger:
Without further ado...
