Luna LOVES the greenhouses but then she is hard to see till she looks at you.

There she is…

My husband can grow peppers in Maine, nuff said.  From the hots to the milds; they are plentiful,

We have a random pumpkin that decided to climb the fence too and is now trying to close the gap between the bean trellis and the deck fence.  Looks like it’s going to make it too.

We have harvested a full basket of tomatoes each day this week, all different types.  We are canning daily with whatever the garden gives us.

Tomatoes, Tomotillos, cucumber, carrots, beans…

 

No help from this guy, I found the other day and promptly gave it to the chickens.

There is so much that has changed in a few months, these shifts will continue.  It is wonderful to see the garden bear fruit but just another reminder that fall is not far away…
