This time of year in New England is interesting. We savor every warm moment, don’t look forward to the mountains of leaves or the snow to follow, and enjoy every item picked in the garden before the first frost.
Some days we harvest an entire dinner, and it brings a really big smile to your face.
We do have an abundance of tomatoes, but no one is complaining. We’re eating them as fast as we can, donate some, and are deciding whether or not to make some sauce, salsa, or jam.
We ate at a local golf course yesterday and enjoyed a delicious grilled cheese with bacon and sweet tomato jam. I’m thinking jam.
The Phlox and Brown-eyed Susans are still brightening up the perennial beds while the Autumn Joy Sedum is getting ready to show off their fall beauty.
Best of all, my Morning Glory vines finally bloomed, and they were definitely worth the wait. But, I do think next year I’ll start them earlier so I can enjoy them longer. 🙂
I’ve been moving plants around ‘again’ in that ever challenging gardening job of balancing beds. Fall cleanup hasn’t started in earnest yet just some weeding and trimming.
How is your garden doing? Winding down for the season or still prolific in production and beauty?
