    The Asparagus And Rhubarb beds are looking healthy, can't wait to see how they survive the winter.
    Honeydew Melons, 4 beauties, a yes for next year.
    Cantelopes, 6 decent sized melons, a maybe for next year
    Banana Melons, 3 large ones, didn't like the taste, so no next year
    Crenshaw Melons,6 decent melons, so-so taste, probably no for next year
    The Isreali and Model melons were a little late, but tasted OK
    Hubbard squash, 6 small squash, but very tasty.
    Gold Nugget Squash, 14 squash, but very dry meat, no for next year
    Delicata Squash, 3 fruit, EXCELLENT taste. a definite YES for next year
    Acorn Squash, 9 large squash, very good, yes for next year.
    Pumpkins, great as always, 12 nice squash.
    Lebanese Bush Mallows, very prolific, but rather bland, no for next year.
    Green Zucchini, not very many, but very good taste, yes for next year.
    Yellow Crook necks, not very prolific or good tasting, no for next year
    Caserta Squash, very prolific and good tasting, yes for next year.
    Bok Choy, OK but bolted very early, no for next year
    Kale, way too much! Probably won't plant next year only because I have so much put away.
    Oregon Giant snow peas, EXCELLENT, will plant many more next year
    White Beets, very good, a definite yes for next year
    Detroit Beets, great as always!
    Provider Green Beans, very prolific
    Royal Burgundy Beans, AWESOME!! will plant double next year.
    Yellow Wax Beans, very good.
    Danvers Carrots, did very well considering they were in a raised bed
    Parsnips, grew HUGE, but not woody. A definite yes for next year.
    Okra, was a bit woody this year, and didn't do as well as last year, but still good. Kind of hit or miss with this one.
    Black Beauty Eggplants, 14 nice eggplants, good flavor, yes for next year
    Casper Eggplants, my husband's favorite. Nice mild flavor,very prolific, yes for next year
    Turkish Eggplants, NO NO NO. Small and very bitter, but VERY prolific!
    Orange Jelly Turnips, very mild flavor, very good, a maybe for next year
    Cauliflower, 12 nice heads, but matured very late
    Broccoli, OK, but not a lot of head to the plant.
    I planted a lettuce mix which didn't do very well, and White Daikon radishes that bolted immediately. No to both of them for next year. I will go back to my Black Seeded Simpson lettuce.
    Celtus didn't come up at all.
    Aunt Mary's Ground Cherrys, the biggest surprise of the year. They are DELICIOUS!!! Triple the plants next year.
    My Strawberries drowned at the beginning, so we had none, but will try again next year.
    Tomatoes were hit and miss this year, some had blossom end rot, but enough made it that we got 7 quarts of sauce and lots of salads. The Heirlooms fared the worst, the Early Girls did the best. We didn't do any Cherry Tomatoes this year, but will next year.
    All in all, a quite successful experiment! Can't wait for next spring!

    Seems I forgot the 50 onions,( equal amounts of white, yellow and red), and the peppers, huge amounts of sweet greens, peperoncini, and jalapenos. It was a GREAT pepper year!
