It’s November in California and our veggie bed does not know what to do. The two big plants in the foreground are zucchini. They are still trying to produce. Just behind and between them are a couple of tomato plants that have sprung up in the past 4 weeks and are doomed. The plant crawling up the stairs is a watermelon vine that could not be happier – thank goodness it’s just flowering and not really trying to produce. And the one at the far end is our Japanese eggplant that is still producing.
