Enjoying the Season

Enjoying the beauty of the garden today while working outside.  Thought I'd share some pics of how things are progressing.  The rest of the day I will be canning. The weather has been so beautiful with cool mornings, no wind, and fantastic evenings.  I'm so blessed to live in a beautiful area.


Everbearing strawberries produce very large berries this time of year.


Summer squash and zucchini.


No squash bugs!  Check out my post on controlling squash bugs.  It works.

Chard.  I love the dark red veins in this variety and tender leaves.

Patiently waiting for these to ripen.  I think the birds are too.


Harvesting sweet corn this week.

Trying something new- Giant Golden Amaranth.

So good and no worms.  I use neem and Spinosad to have worm free corn.

I'll be freezing on the cob, cut corn, and canning corn relish.
