Mid-Sept Garden

Exceptionally dry weather, an effort to cut back on the water bill, strange heat surges and dipping night temperatures, all are bringing the garden year to a close.  Many crops are still producing, despite the scruffy appearance of the yard.

A few shots from the garden yesterday evening:

Picking more of these beauties.

Picking elderberries while the kids play with the neighbor boys.


Waiting for the Concord Grapes.  So many stunning grapes on the cusp of perfection.

Quetzalcoatlus, our loquacious chocolate Indian Runner, hopes you enjoyed a peek into what’s going on in our mid-September garden.

Later this week – a new recipe, crafting with the kiddos, and some more from the garden.
