Hope of Harvest
Summer is here in full force,
and we are beginning to anticipate the harvest.
I walk through my gardens in hope,
enjoying the promise
and anticipating the rush
of putting up.
Take a photo tour of a few of the plants with me.
As a result of the kids’ interest in the American Indian custom of the Three Sisters,
we planted corn, beans and squash (or melon in our case) together.
This is the Long Thai Purple Podded Yard bean.
Fisher’s Earliest Sweet Corn
Kabouli Black Garbanzo
The taller plants are Titan sunflowers. In front are Red Calaoo and Love Lies Bleeding amaranth.
Red Cabbage and Broccoli
Cucumber Mexican Sour Gherkin and Potato
Beefsteak bloom and Roma babies
I had nothing to do with the wild grapes and apples, but I have plenty of plans for them.
This coming week is supposed to be full of sun and warmth,
so I’m looking forward to seeing everything take off.
