The garden in September...

The past days here have given us summer like temperatures.  Thankfully the week-end has a cooler forecast.  The garden, though, has been flourishing with the warmth.

The final green beans of the season.

The okra is in bloom.

The sweet potatoes are EVERYWHERE!

Greens for the fall.

Sad-looking corn.:-(

"Surprise" basil has appeared!
I hope you have some special week-end plans!  Take care!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.

  1. Oh these just make me smile, How wonderful! Even if I had the space (I have a little bit though) I am too too well, lazy to do the work involved.

  3. Seeing you harvesting your veggies so often makes me wish I had planted a little garden but I plan to plant one close yo the house next year. The Okra is a pretty plant. I've never seen an Okra plant.
    Have a great weekend.
