State of the Garden (First Weekend After the Fall Equinox)

I pulled no longer productive summer plants and planted lettuce, spinach, chard, and arugula. The birds have been eating my seeds, so I got seedlings at Eastern Market yesterday morning.  I have planted some more seeds, but wanted back up.  The grape tomato is still prolific, alone among the tomatoes.  The cucumbers are completely past, making room for chard and turnips.  It is time to make the last batches of pesto with the basil and parsley.  Another blossom has come and not quite gone on the night-blooming cereus.
