Once the mosquitoes hit I sort of abandoned the garden, luckily that paid off. The peppers finally kicked in by September, we had loads of pumpkins and the sunflowers were taller than ever. Tomatoes did well too, although I planted too many of the small red ones. I prefer the bigger ones- not that I am lazy:-)- but they are easier to chop up:-) Our broccoli exploded as you can see. I thought it would make a perfect wedding bouquet for those who love their greens:-) This one I gave to our neighbour who is a master gardener. I thought that she would appreciate it the most. Well,I hope that your gardens worked out too. Don’t forget to dig up those potatoes- I just thought about it this morning. If you have any good tips for getting them out without cutting them in half with the shovel – please share. Soon it will be time to clean them all out and start again. Perhaps we can extend into an Indian summer this fall and not say goodbye to the warmth just yet.
