August in the Garden

What you are seeing are beans, beets, chard, asparagus, nasturtiums, tomatoes, and pumpkin.

We also are getting artichokes…

…and peas.

I don’t know if you can tell from the pictures, but we have really big cedar trees in our yard, so there is never very much sun.  That makes tomatoes very difficult to ripen.  So far we haven’t had any yet, but we do have some killer green ones.

The big question would be “Are we saving any money by growing a garden?” That answer would be NO!  But it is a lot of fun.  🙂

    Fun AND educational AND good for the world AND delicious. Gardening is an expensive hobby, but it’s a win-win anyway.

    A couple things you could do with green tomatoes are fried green tomatoes or pickled green tomatoes….just in case they don’t ripen.

    Your garden looks great, btw!
