{august garden}


Roots and beans were the theme this month. And, of course, tomatoes. Always tomatoes.

Cherokee Purple and Abraham Lincoln.

Weekly canning necessitated.  Garden Box 3 kept us busy in August!

Five to six quarts a week, now stashed for winter in the cupbord under the stairs.

Butter beans were a welcome addition to our favorite soup recipe. Our bean crop is thriving thanks to the resident Guardian of Garden Box 1, appearing by day in the form of a six-inch mantis...

Shelling beans on a summer evening. Doing my ancestors proud.

September's star crop will almost certainly bjalapeƱo peppers. Tell me your favorite hot pepper recipes and I'll give them a go. Faves to be posted with photos and due credit!
