I can't believe that September is here already. When I am immersed in graphic design projects there is no time. I have been very busy lately. When I do get a break during the day, I head outside for a breath of fresh air.
First, I visit the chickens and check their water and food. They watch me in anticipation as I continue into the garden with basket in hand and harvest whatever is ready. I often pick some greens or find a cucumber or zucchini that has grown too large. I give these to the chickens as I exit the garden and watch as they enjoy the treat. During this time, I talk to them and observe each one to be sure they are healthy. Once satisfied, I retreat inside to return to work. It is a nice break.
Harvests this week were mostly beans and tomatoes. Lots and lots of beans and tomatoes. Here are some of those harvests:
|Trionfo Violetto and Kentucky Wonder Pole Beans|
|Amish Paste Tomatoes|
Also harvested but not photographed were zucchini, a couple peppers, and a few handfuls of raspberries that were eaten quickly.
Be sure to visit Daphne’s Dandelions to see what others are harvesting this week.
