And here is some broccoli that is taking it's time. It will soon be roasted with olive oil and a few herbs and served on our table, if it doesn't end up blanched and in the freezer.
The first Brussels Sprouts will be sampled today, but this little cabbage will continue to grow for another week or two.
Watermelons and pumpkins are ripening on sprawling vines.
The ladybugs are enjoying the spikey silver leaves of the perennial artichokes, and the cucumber and green bean plants keep producing both flowers and vegetables.
The bright lights cosmos that I planted to fill in some empty patches in the garden rows are blooming, amid rampant wild mustard and a jungle of tomato plants that are producing an abundance of leaves, but few ripe tomatoes thus far.
I would have included a few more photos, and will perhaps share them over the next few days, but my dial-up connection is being particularly slow today. Where-ever you are, I hope your day is filled with bounty and abundance.
