Well, it looks like I just took another long hiatus from blogging. So much has happened and I’ve been debating about whether or not to share it all. It’s hard, life changing stuff and I guess I need some time before I do. I’m sure that I’ll find the words and ways to talk about it. We’ve spent a lot of time away from home this summer but the garden just kept growing and growing…
What’s happening? Let’s see…
The herbs are thriving…
For the most part they don’t mind drought, or at best, inconsistent watering, like most plants do.
The parsley and snapdragon and oregano just forge on, along with the mint and thyme, chives and dill…
Herbs are so easy to grow.
The more I cut them, the more they grow. I may try to get some arranged for the “In a Vase on Monday” blog hop.
This guy is haunting… he just keeps coming back.
I’m pretty sure it’s tomatillo… but so so late in the season. Am I wrong about that?
This is what happens when broccoli bolts… bet you don’t get to see that too often. Just as it started to move toward getting ready to pick we had a very hot spell and that was the end of the broccoli.
This variety of pepper is Buran, a native of Poland. Their nice, light and tasty with rather thin skins.
The hot red peppers are ready to be strung up to dry, then I’ll shred them into flakes. We like hot foods but these are pretty intense when their fresh.
I lost the tag to this yellow tomato but I have to say that it’s delightful. It’s sweet and holds it shape in salsa or stir fry.
The Kellogg’s Breakfast variety are still green but should start turning any day now. These weigh at least a pound each. I’m looking forward to slicing one open to taste it.Little sweeties… perfect little pops for eating, cooking, anything!
I missed the window for planting sweet peas in the spring so here they come for the fall. Something chomped on them while we were away and they grew right back when we came home and there was more activity in our yard again… hoping for some blooms soon!
Swiss chard is another nice cool weather vegetable. Something is eating at it a little bit, maybe slugs?
It’s a good thing that the peppers, onions and cilantros are ready to make salsa.
I’m going to have a busy morning. I might even can some, we’ll see!
How’s your garden growing? I have some blog reading to do!
It’s good to be back.
Love you all, Michele
