Camper GroVid22 Garden Blues

Mmmm, Blue Tastes Good


I keep thinking the season is just about over, and my plants keep making a liar out of me.

Above: Blueberry Cherry Tomato

The Camper Garden has 6 potted plants left: One SpaceMaster 80 cucumber, One Blueberry Cherry tomato, one Sweetie Cherry tomato, one White Cherry tomato, one Tigerella Tomato, and one Ukrainian Plum tomato. There's a lot of white cherry, sweetie, and blueberry cherry on the vines, still to ripen. There's a couple of Ukrainian plums, and a few Tigerella left. Maybe 2 cucumber, too.

Above: Sweetie Cherry Tomato, some ripe, some almsot, some very green
Below: The Spacemaster80 Cuke is hiding behind some cherry tomato, trying to get there, too!

As I think about the garden at the camper, I am planning ahead for next spring. To that end, I have created a raised bed of sorts, to plant some more flowers in come spring time.

As I start to make the bed, I realize, the ground below is dreadful. It's sandy, and terribly clustered with pine tree roots. VERY plant-unfriendly.


I am building up the soil, and planning on using the newly added mounds for flowers come spring time. I've cut the bottoms from the Salvia pots, to allow the roots the freedom to snake their way down. As soon as these rains stop, I'll return to making this bed a healthy place for spring planting.

Come fall, as you put your gardens to be, what steps do YOU take?

We got down to 32 a couple of nights ago. I think the end is here. Still have brussel sprouts finishing up but I don't think the remaining tomatoes are going to ripen. Also still have pepper plants out there. I am still considering bringing one inside. We have started clearing the beds as the plants finish up. Thats about as far as we have got on planning.

I think Brussels Sprouts have an affinity for cooler nights. Even a frost or some light snows.
I suspect, the first frost will greatly sadden the peppers for sure. Unless, they do manage to get themselves inside.

Aww those blue tomatoes look very special. An unusual addition to your garden. I hope the plant continues to surprise you and you will continue to reap.
