I know it's officially Fall and it's even felt a little like it with our having temps in the 70's for the past several days. Our patch of greens even know it's Fall; they're not wilting from the heat and humidity this week.
James planted turnips, 7-tops, and some mustard greens that we've been eating pretty regularly for a few weeks now.
The peppers are turning red, so they know it's Fall. Aren't they pretty? I may go out and pick some tomorrow and try to pickle a few. We have cayenne, and jalapenos, and some round pepper that's hot as blazes.
Some of the summer sunflowers thought it was Spring again; they reseeded, grew, and bloomed again. The bees have really been happy about that.
We scattered some wild flowers back in the spring and this was one of the varieties that came up. They didn't start blooming until last month. There's this color and a dark purple one. Does anyone know what they are?
We're still getting a few tomatoes from the garden too and I intend to enjoy them for as long as I can. I am usually chomping at the bit for the taste of a tomato fresh from the garden during the winter months.
Soon it will be time for all the veggies and blooms to go to bed to wait through the winter. I'll be bundled up a'waitin' for Spring!
