The few tomatoes that grew this summer came indoors in November, green. The garlic chives are still in bloom, rather than seed. The new tweedia plant has yet to open its seed pods. The tropical weed (an affectionate name for a great, if invasive creature) grew but a few inches. The olives are ripening or dying in various shapes and sizes, ungrown. The vine itself was barren. Its leaves, however, provided much cherished fall foliage interest for a couple of months. Something to rest one's weary eyes upon, away from everything that went wrong in the garden during not summer.
