Harvest time is in full swing. It started with picking a few cherry tomatoes here and there and we are now bringing in loads of lettuce, chard, herbs, beans and okra with plenty of squash and tomatoes on the way.
The kitchen garden is now lush and overgrown. The rosemary and basil smell so wonderful when I open the back door. And the dill is out of control!
The second squash to volunteer has started to flower and the burgundy amaranth seems to be going through a growth spurt.
The bush beans already have fruit and the pole beans are climbing up the trellis.
I’m pretty sure this one is a watermelon.
Our ridiculous volunteer spaghetti squash.
For the longest time I wondered what this was. It had to be something I planted because it was growing almost in a row. Then, while admiring my neighbor’s garden, I remembered…sunflowers!
More picture updates on the trees, fedge, strawberry beds and vine crops coming next week.
