Wordless Wednesday: Time for a Break

There’s a point in summer where, as much as I love my garden, I want to get away from it all. I want to lounge in a hammock, read books and take naps. I want to get so bored that my brain has space to recover from this crazy year so far. That’s the plan next week.

Gardenerd will still supply you with helpful tips and tricks, not to worry. But if there’s a gap, you’ll know why. Here’s some inspiration for whatever your brain needs a break from in these coming weeks.

Koginut butternut squash
Koginut butternut squash is setting fruit all over.
Pomegranates are starting to turn. This fall fruit will be ready in September.
mystery squash
This mystery pumpkin will reveal itself soon. Some kind of hubbard style squash? We’ll see. Could be another Koginut. Who knows!
Ladybug on eggplant
Ladybugs are hanging out on the eggplant leaves.
Wordless Wednesday lemon verbena
Lemon verbena is ready to harvest. Time to make Lemon Verbena ice cream.
Lemon balm
Lemon balm is sending up new growth since we cleared away the old. This would make a great ice cream too.
Fuji Apple Tree
Our Fuji is protected 100% under our new contraption. It continues to work like a charm. Zero losses since we installed it.
Green onions
We regrow store-bought green onions by planting the roots for an endless supply all season long.

Time for a Break for Flowers

Wordless Wednesday Concert Bell Sunflower
Every day, we find time for a break to look at these Concert Bell Sunflower. It’s an F1 that was sent to us to test out. Stunning so far.

But there’s so much to eat!

Stowells evergreen corn
Stowells evergreen sweet corn is tasty and makes the perfect side for any summer meal.
wordless wednesday salsa
Homemade pico de gallo showcases the fresh flavors of the harvest. We made a fresh batch with Roma tomatoes.
Delicata squash
Delicata squash starts to mature on the vine. We like to store them for this great fall dish.

Enjoy your garden, or your time away from it. It’s time for a break to regroup, rest, and get ready for whatever comes next.
