The August garden is finally providing. We have tomatoes galore! (Ellie ate about 12 that she had picked herself today). The kale just keeps growing and growing. It seems we’ve finished our corn. Now I’m looking into what to do with those dried husks. We have a little bit of swiss chard for those morning omelets and lots of herbs still growing strong and keeping the honey bees happy. The Jack-be-little pumpkins are almost ready to be picked and the hops! Those glorious hops! I caught a glimpse of them in the afternoon sun the other day and had to run out and photograph them. Lush and green (even in this brownish land of California) and reaching all the way up to the top floor windows of the house. It’s a fun, full of life month in the garden. And as you can see, Ellie’s library sunflower finally bloomed. She’s one happy gardener.

  1. Now I know what hops look like. Oh, love the little one watering the garden. Otherwise, everything looks mahvelous!

  2. It looks like I need to head west for some beautiful vegetables. Your garden looks amazing. I am still trying to get the fall garden in, first it was rain every day and now we have heat indexes of 120 degrees so I am still waiting.
