August 17th Is This Fall Weather?

How about this weather? Cool temperatures have slowed the garden. This week's cucumber harvest is much smaller than last week's. The tomatoes and tomatilloes are ripening more slowly. But, we still have a bounty of cucumbers and tomatoes, but no tomatilloes yet.
We need to harvest the red potatoes and many of the edamame soybeans.
We are starting to get lots of peppers, especially green and red bells, which were in short supply last year. Twelve plants should keep us happy. We also have plenty of Poblanos (Anchos), but we forgot to plant JalapeƱos for some reason. I have a map of the pepper in the house.
I've been planting a few fall vegetables over the last couple weeks: red and golden beets, 2 types of spinach, 3 types of lettuce, 2 types of chard, turnips, kale and another round of peas. The first frost is about 8 weeks away.
