"Fall" Garden Updates

Peppers finally flourishing after the Pepper Weevil attack.
Red spider mites devastating our tomato crops. The leaves are turning gray because the mites suck out all the chlorophyll. We decided to yank all the tomatoes out even though most of them are green. Time for more green tomato salsa.
White Guavas starting to turn color
Navel Oranges growing big
Late season corn, about 4' tall, very short, but bearing fruit
Sunchokes blossoming.
Dwarf Cavendish Banana that was transplanted from the other house earlier this year is thriving in it's new location. Wanna know the secret? We buried chicken bones by it. Bones contain high levels of Potassium, which the Bananas love. Check out the first photo of the Dwarf Cavendish when we first transplanted it to see the difference!
White Hibiscus type flowers in full bloom
small jack-o-lantern pumpkin turning color.
This bed has some sleeping garlic bulbs, and a line of Romaine Lettuce.
Gerbera Daisies enjoying the sun.
