And don't make provisions for your garden beyond the bare minimum, there are some crops that do well.
Dry beans on the vine:
Peppers waiting to ripen to red or orange or, in this case, yellow.
Popcorn drying on the stalk.
Hard-shelled winter squash, now ready to be made into pies or custard or pancakes. . .
But summer squash? Well, not so happy, as it turned out. The chickens liked this 30" monster just fine, though. I'm torn between ripping out the plant and waiting to see if I can coax out just one or two more reasonable squashes.
