At the end of each month, I've been sharing a bit of what's been happening in the gardens over the last few weeks.
In early August, we were still picking lots and lots of green beans!
We also had a good crop of tomatoes, carrots, onions and red beets. We definitely ate more than the recommended daily allowances for fruits and veggies this month!
Coneflowers are very long-lasting and still going strong.
The crape myrtle sustained a lot of winter damage and still managed to bloom after a pretty severe spring pruning.
We also had several hydrangeas with winter damage and a few of them did not bloom at all. But the Limelight didn't seem to mind a bit.
The gourds and pumpkins are pretty much going in all directions!
I'm still dreaming of a great big pumpkin patch, but these little guys are pretty cute!
I have several varieties of sedum that bloom in the fall, but I almost think they are prettier before they bloom. They have really great texture!
And I just love this bright shade of green!
I have Morning Glory growing on an old iron bed and noticed my first bloom this morning - what a nice surprise!
So that's a bit of what's been happening here.
How is your garden holding up as we transition into fall?
