August in the garden

The garden has really reached it’s peak – we’ve been harvesting kale, chard, lettuce, beans, potatoes and garlic. I am starting to make a list of what worked great this year and what didn’t (onions, carrots, parsnips, cucumbers). And I am looking forward to the next things to mature (squash, leeks and tomatoes).

The last month has finally been warm enough for things to really GROW. I have drained several of the big water barrels – each time I water the garden it takes about half to three-quarters of a barrel.

Yesterday afternoon though…there was the first feel of fall. I don’t know if anyone else could feel it except me. Just a subtle cooling. An end of summer feeling….

This blog is my online journal to keep track of what is going on in different parts of the garden, different times of the year.
