Garden Update - This and That

On Wednesdays I usually try to post a garden update, so here is this week's look at what is going on in the garden.

I thought I had killed all my sunflowers but it turns out two survived. I'm so glad because sunflowers were one of the things Amanda most wanted me to plant.

I love the colors on these gourds.

Many of the grapes are ready to be cut. I'm hoping to get that done this evening. There will only be enough for us to eat in the next few days. I'm hoping to get some more vines planted so that I can make grape juice.

We been getting lots and lots of tomatoes but most of them are staying small. This picture is from Monday, I'll probably have almost that many again this evening when I pick them. I think I'm going to try my hand at Dehydrated Tomatoes.

Here is our little harvest of black eyed peas. I have them here to finish drying before I shell them. We only planted one small row this year but next year I'm going to plant more since these did so well.

Thanks to Doug's faithful watering the Impatiens on the front porch are still looking very nice. It's nice to sit on the porch in the late evenings and enjoy the cooler air and pretty flowers.

And that's a bit of what's going in my garden and yard this week.
