In the Garden ~ August 2016
It’s harvest time around here for sure and I was out in the garden taking some photos when I realized it’s time for a monthly garden update! These pictures were taken right at the end of August so it’s almost a September garden, but well… you get the idea…
Kale is still going strong and I finally have a couple sunflowers blooming.
Zucchini is still going strong, although I think it’s on it’s last legs.
That little green pepper is so tiny and cute!
This one above was taken from the opposite corner of the garden. I can’t believe we still have strawberries!
I get a kick out of my corn. The stalk on the left is about 6 1/2 feet tall and then they just go downhill from there. It looks like a family of corn plants to me 🙂 I hope we get a couple cobs at least but it’s not looking so good. The weather is supposed to really cool down the next couple nights and I heard a possibility of frost. Yikes!
A little tiny baby butternut squash. I love when veggies are tiny, they are so cute! Behind it is a good sized cucumber. My cukes did really well this year as well as my bush beans and kale of course. You know what didn’t do well this year? Tomatoes. I was extremely disappointed with my tomatoes. Got hardly any at all. Although I hear that was a common plight around here.
And last but not least, we have melons! I am so excited to have a couple melons again this year. I guess I only think of melons growing in the warmer climates down south. But if anyone wonders if melons can be grown above the 49th parallel, I have proof that yes they do!
