It’s almost the end of September and yet my tomato and zucchini plants are still working on ripening their fruits. I have harvested big, juicy tomatoes here and there as well as a bagful of cherry variations but tons are still left in the garden. My brother-in-law who is also an avid gardener, suggested pruning to speed up the process so I pruned and trimmed away.
It’s not that I don’t have access to the grocery store and I’m in dire need of these vegetables (or fruits?). I’m just worried that the Fall season will roll in soon and cooler temperature will kill my plants before they reach full bloom. What do you think? Any tips?
They’re beating me to it.
