Our glass garden

The largest of the Wildwood pumpkins just starting to color.
They will mature to a buff color.

Two medium sized pumpkins about ready to pick.

A volunteer tomato just starting to set fruit - our first frost date is around November 15th, so about 6 weeks to go for this guy.

Letting my garden evolve as I see what's working & what's not.
Here I'm creating a perennial bed on the border of the garden - leaving a majority of the space open to get the tractor through. 

I've been reading a lot of Eliot Coleman lately & thinking about his ideas of interplanting in succession.  And especially about use of space.  This is my first experiment in 30 inch beds densely planted.  The first seedlings are just up - we'll see how it goes.

Beets up about an inch.
