The garden is a wild jungle right now! Our season seemed so late this year, but now the garden is looking like a summer garden. This morning we went out to water and harvest, and I took some pictures while everything was all aglow.
The sunflowers are getting tall along the greenhouse, but not blooming yet.
I love the bright vibrant yellows and oranges of the calendula. It comes up on it’s own each year and is a welcome sight.
The zucchini is massive! Bye-bye farmer’s market zucchini, hello homegrown garden zucchini! It feels good to be harvesting zucchini in the backyard.
The runner beans are taller than we are now, growing beyond their trellises.
The blossoms on them are so beautiful!
They add so much beauty to the garden and remind us of sweet peas.
I had fun capturing them on camera.
There is something I love about seeing them wrap around their trellises.
They reach for that sun with gusto!
You can see I was very enthusiastic about runner beans this morning.
There is squash galore in the garden. They are covering pathways and making it a creative dance to get everything watered without stepping on anything. I love the heart shaped leaves!
We’ve been eating chard (as you can tell on the right.)
We grew a few varieties, but the Bright Lights Chard is our favorite. So colorful!
Reiki came to join us while we watered. She used to be hanging out with the goats all the time. She and Grr have been mourning since the goats went to their new home, they were good friends with them, but they’re adjusting. They’ve been spending more time with us, near the house, which has been nice.
So friends, what’s growing in your August gardens?
