Summer’s bounty

By Carol Clark

My vegetable garden is finally producing like I dreamed it would when I planted it last spring. Just in time for autumn - which starts THURSDAY!

Strawberries are coming back on -



The chives have beautiful blooms -



The pumpkins are blooming but not turning to fruit :(



Fall lettuce is coming on -



Here is yesterday's harvest. Summer squash - can't be stopped!

Tomatoes - enough for eating AND fresh salsa. Green beans producing nicely, jalapenos, cucumber and tarragon. If we could keep this up all year, we could be self sufficient.
 

My heart is broken for the summer loss to come, but I am waiting in expectation for cool autumn days and changing colors.
