It's harvest time! Here is what we have growing. Swiss chard (not sure why), carrots (all over and eaten), basil and other herbs, two varieties of peppers, 5 varieties of tomatoes, blackberries (all made into pies and smoothies), 2 types of squash, okra for Julia and Curtis, and sad to say strawberries that aren't doing well. We are also the proud parents of six sunflowers, which average around 10 feet tall! Their circumferences are unbelievable. This is on of the few that can still hold its head high.
Also here for your viewing pleasure, I am finally finishing up Julia's quilt! I will hopefully be done by tomorrow morning (when Julia return from YW Camp) Thanks for all the help Rachel and Nat!
Tomatoes are dripping off the vines! I have been picking about 20-30 a day! Here are some of the finest on the grill ready to make salsa.
The lovely black somewhat carcinogenic finish will make a fine batch. I also roasted the jalepenos.
