It’s harvest time! The garden is delighting us with abundance as we head into August. Tomatoes, peppers, tomatoes, onions, tomatoes, squash…did I mention tomatoes? Yea, that’s happening. Here are some photos celebrating summer in all its glory.
Henderson’s bush lima beans area great when eaten fresh. We made this soup with them.
Proven Winners sent us a Fire Away™ Hot and Heavy pepper to test. Despite an attack by grasshoppers it’s producing like crazy. This Proven Winners Amazel Basil™ is one of our only plants without downy mildew this year. It is proving itself to be amazing. Thanks, Proven Winners, for sending this!
Our Fuji apples are almost ready. Maybe next month.
One last artichoke is flowering. We’ll see if it produced seeds.
Our home-grown harvest of Red Fife Wheat is small, but we’re excited to make bread with it.
Our first time growing Green Pod Red Bean Asparagus beans is proving successful. The Asparagus bean flowers are pretty to boot!
