Mid-September Gardening

Today was one of the biggest harvest days I’ve had in a while: a cucumber, a bunch of large tomatoes, several cherry tomatoes, a handful of chili peppers, about three tomatillos, basil and sage, a sharp stalk of lemongrass, and two yardlong beans.

You can see from that shot that the bunching onions are abloom, bringing all sorts of pollinators to my garden.

But although most prolific, those aren’t the only flowers I have at the moment:

Unphotographed: a snapdragon and candy cane-striped impatiens and my small white dahlias.

I also have veggies growing, including chard, other peppers, sorrel, a couple kale plants, and some zucchini that the squash bugs have infiltrated (as well as the cucumbers and one tomato plant).

What’s growing in your garden or yard these days?

You have some really pretty flowers. I’ve seen million bells before, but I didn’t know what they were called, so thanks for that. Here the biggest eye-catchers are the wood asters. They’re not that showy individually, but they’re quite something when they get going en masse.

Oh your garden is amazing. I am having a second b1oom on two c1ematis p1ants. The cosmos are thriving fina11y, and the roses are abundant. I’m trying to press a few f1owers so I can give frames with the mat having my f1owers on it for gifts.
