I love this time of year. The garden seems to be putting its all into the final celebration of the season. Everything's coming in abundance. There's something tender about it; the plant sacrificing for its posterity, feeding us, bringing a certain grace and serenity to the changing of seasons. Here's what our garden is looking like as we pass through summer into fall.
Two varieties of melon share the same trellis; Charentais and Queen Anne's Pocket Melons (cute, right?). The smaller ones will ripen later to an orange-y tiger stripe. The larger Charentais have been making our breakfasts fragrant and indulgent! That regal golden amaranth is the centerpiece of the garden, simply there to be beautiful.
And our first year planting onions. They're spicy and sweet all at once and make your eyes water like the dickens!
How's your summer garden wrapping up these days?
