Time for an early September garden check in. Oh my god, can you believe it’s September?
Time to start plotting what to make out of these adorable sugar pumpkins!
We have a steady stream of patty pan right now.
Then we have this one patty pan that mysteriously turned mostly green. It’s from the same plant as the others.
There are one or two tomatoes ready everyday, but not a giant pile of them yet. Good thing we are ordering 30 or 40 pounds from a local organic farm to can so we can enjoy ours fresh.
These are possibly my favorite tomatoes – green zebras!
the mixed bed of green onions, leeks + peppers
We’ve got ground cherries in the front and backyard, and we’re starting to get a taste of them. I’ve got plans for them so I hope they ripen soon.
Our watermelons didn’t get planted out in time, and didn’t do so well when they were inside, but this little guy is still trying to make a watermelon. Aww.
This is not food, but the Japanese maple we planted out in July is thriving. This gives me hope for the dozen or so dwarf fruit trees we plan to attempt to plant in our yard soon.
What are you eating from your yard?
