Hello Thursday, you’re looking lovely so far. The sunflowers are blooming like mad and the fuzzy bumble bees are HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! I hope they give the people out on a walk a big smile.
The hanging basket is still hanging in there… I haven’t fertilized it at all this summer, just watering it like mad as the basket portion seems to dry out pretty quick if I don’t stay on top of things.
Here’s the latest aerial photo of our garden plot the HH took with his drone.
With the cooler evening temps lately, it definitely feels like things are beginning to wind down in the garden.
The tomatoes though… they’re still going strong. We had BLT’s yesterday with one of our giant beefsteaks. It was awesome.
Have you grown ancho peppers before? Does this look like it’s ready to pick?
The hot peppers…. I harvested those yesterday.
And just look at those baby brussels sprouts… only a few more weeks to go.
The cabbage is getting close too.
But the thing I’m most excited for are the pumpkins and winter squash. This green one above will turn into one of those super warty orange pumpkins. 🙂
We have over a dozen butternuts growing in the back right now.
And a few baby boo pumpkins as well. Those will go on the front porch as soon as they turn orange. I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to decorating my front porch for fall. Hopefully I’ll be able to find some purple and orange pansies at the garden center soon. Last time the HH checked, all they had was mums.
Things are changing pretty quick around here, and I’m pretty pumped about it.
How is YOUR garden doing these days? Are things winding down? How much longer do you think you have until it’s time to harvest your winter squash? Curious minds want to know.
Have a wonderful day everyone, LIFE IS GOOD.
