I’m planning to start over in the fall, but for now I’m going to emphasize the positive.
Like these peppy little flowers. These little black eyed Susans are great. I was expecting them to be much bigger, but they are so sweet.
Aren’t these the cutest little tomatoes you’ve seen? I’m going to save seeds and plant more. If I start seeds this month, they should be ready for the fall garden.
I’m still picking muscadine grapes from my backyard. They’re growing wild up some trees, and I have been enjoying them fresh.
Picked this beauty this morning. I saw a yummy recipe with eggplant, tomatoes, and cheeses that I may try.
I usually dice eggplant, sauté it with garlic, then add it to a veggie scramble; but I may branch out this time.
What’s going on in your garden? Any plans for a fall garden?
I did start some broccoli this week as well as cauliflower and kale. If I can keep the bunnies away there might be a chance for fall.
Impressive eggplant 🙂
Thanks! I put the eggplant in a stirfry. Good for you for starting some fall crops. I’m holding out for fall. I took pictures of the bright spots in the garden, but overall it’s pretty dismal out there.
Sounds like you’ve had a very successful garden. With our severe drought we’ve had limited success. Tomatoes, carrots, onions, and a few peppers. We got a couple of zucchini and a few yellow squash. That was really disappointing. Who can’t grow zucchini for goodness sakes? I remember having so much as a zucchini I didn’t know what to do with it…. years ago and I wasn’t even trying that hard! This was the first time we grew onions and I was really shocked how easy it is and how much better they taste.
Zucchini is tricky for me. I had good success with ‘Black Zucchini’ this year, and may try it again this fall. We just had a week of intermittent rain, and it’s very sad out in the garden. Sounds like the opposite of you. I’m trying to maintain what I have, but am going to try to have a good fall garden. In fact, that makes me want to pull some kale out of the freezer. Gardening is an adventure!!! I’m glad I don’t have to depend on it to be able to eat!
Isn’t that the truth! ♡
