The days maybe getting shorter and nights cooler but don't give up on the garden yet...
|Heirloom Rattlesnake Pole Bean reaches for the sky and pumps|
out beans all summer long. Great as snap beans or dry beans.
Save some seeds for planting next summer and you won't need to
buy seeds again.
|Black Turtle Bean, an heirloom bush bean, drying|
in semi shade
|You too, can grow your own garlic, it's so easy, here's how.|
|Datura or Angels Trumpet is a hardy perennial,|
and self sows wildly in my garden.
|Lao eggplant is small, only 1" to 2" in diameter. |
Mild in flavor, good in soups and stews.
|Purple Blush eggplant is best grilled, thin skinned with not |
a taste of bitterness, it's our summer staple.
|Paper Lantern peppers are super hot, not for the faint of heart.|
|The squash patch is looking a bit tired but these Delicatas |
are perfect and ready to be picked for winter storage.
|last of the season|
|Creating a bit of Provence in our backyard, we planted|
the first batch of lavender. Eighty plants in three rows.
They're looking quite promising!
