For as much as we did last weekend, I wasn't as productive this weekend. The weather was just too beautiful. I thinned some daylilies, made cucumber jelly, and picked tons of slugs out of the flower beds. I also spent a lot of time taking photos. I think the bees feel fall is on the way, because they have put pollen collecting into overdrive.
I don't know where this guy came from. I'd say his clock needs reset. My turnips are looking good. Have have two nice little pumpkins. My corn looks great, but needs to get moving. I don't think there is a lot of summer left.
This is a prennial spinach called strawberry spinach. A friend told me about it and I am sold. It doesn't really bolt. In late summer it gets these little berries and they taste good. My greenhouse is chaos, but things are growing. The outside garden isn't doing too bad, but a mouse nibbled on all of my zucchini. I have plenty of chamomile for tea and spa treatments.
I love this time of year. The cool nights, harvesting from the garden, everything seems to slow down. I hope you are enjoying your August. What are you doing with you garden harvest?
