We are thrilled with the upcoming weather forecast. The garden will be also. Towards the end of August, I always get a bit giddy when I look at the extended forecast and there is still not a hint of frost to come. The garden is going to keep rocking until it freezes. This week looks hot and dry. So we will keep up last week's mantra...Harvest, water, repeat.
The beans are just starting to come in this year. I am so happy. Last year we lost them to the weeds. I LOVE beans right out of the garden. They are truly one of my favorite flavors of summer.
The sunflowers seem to be peaking this week. To help them last longer, cut the stems short enough so the flower head rests on the edge of your vase. Having something to rest on will keep them from getting droopy too quickly. Keep the water full and fresh and they should last a week.
Just so you know what is coming....the winter squash is shaping up to be a stellar crop this year. And carrots. Oh. My. Get ready. There are a lot of carrots out there! The garlic is still in the shed curing.
