Corn and Tomato Harvest Going Great, Fall Seedlings Planted

Started harvesting the Silver Queen white corn about 2 weeks ago and the roma tomatoes  really started to come on over the last week or so.  I harvested about 30 pounds of roma tomatoes today and processed them  using a food strainer to make sauce to freeze.  The corn has been really good and harvest will finish up within the next few days.  After that, the corn stalks will be cut down and a late planting of bush green beans will go in this bed.  There is only about 60 more days until the first fall frost in my zone 5 garden.  The fall cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and lettuce seedlings have all been planted out into the garden.  Now we just need some rain as it has been pretty dry lately.  I also planted some Scarlet Nantes carrots seeds about 2 weeks ago, and most have germinated.  The King of the Garden pole lima beans are way behind this year.  The vines have just started to flower, so I am not sure if I will get any beans off of these before the first fall frost.  I am not sure what has caused this lack of production.  I guess it might be all of the cool weather we have been having.  Harvest also continues on the celery and peppers.  Another bed of bush green beans is just starting to flower, so it won’t be long before harvest begins on these.  I might get some radish seeds in the ground in another few weeks.  If you have not started your fall garden, do so now.  Fall is a great time to garden.
