Fall garden update

A quick update of the surviving plants @ charm city garden. I'm already thinking of next year's garden. The last ichiban eggplant. I'm letting it grow so that I can collect the seeds.

Red romaine is growing, one plant is starting to bolt. The lettuce itself is quite bitter but still pretty good.

I have 2 containers of bok choy. These are very good in stir fry. Next to the bok choy, I also have a container of romaine lettuce that I probably started too late because it is not growing very big.

I have 2 containers of chinese be honest I don't know how big they are supposed to get. I should probably just harvest them and some point.
Two container of Chinese kale
The chinese pepper plant is getting bushy and still producing fruit.

Chinese pepper of varying size
The supersweet tomato still has many green tomatoes but I think it is too cold for it to ripen.

Both the jalapeno and thai pepper is starting to yellow but still has many peppers. The pickled peppers is so delicious! I definitely will make more pickled jalapeno with the remaining peppers. I'm not so sure what to do with all the thai peppers...
This plant fell over after the storm, so now is supported
The jalapeno is starting to turn red
Thai red pepper - so many peppers still!
