Mid-August and everything is growing well but my little squirrel heart tells me fall is in the air and just around the corner. I’ve got ripe tomatoes and lots of beans and cukes and zucchini. The fall stuff is mostly in and growing well and the late summer flowers are adding some pretty to the place.
But, as usual, the race is on to harvest and preserve and ripen as much as possible before, too quickly, shorter days and colder temps bring the garden back around to its fundamentals: chard, kale, lettuce, greens, hearty root crops. All but one of these pictures were taken today at around 6:30 in the early morning harvesting light.
