|Lisa made a wonderfully delicious |
apple pie for us today. Awesome.
|Volunteer corn growing next to |
the asparagus bed. Prolific, many ears per stalk.
|Rose up close.|
|Roses and statice.|
|Cosmos. So cheery.|
|White gladiola. Lavender down the throat.|
|Reddish-orange gladiola. Male and female flower parts showing. The stripes help pollinators know where to head for their nectar snack.|
|Multicolored and ruffled gladiola. |
Pleasing to the eye.
|Purple and white statice with a two toned rose. Very showy.|
|Bumble bee on the white dahlia. "Where's my snack?"|
|Apples, Asian pears, Brooks prunes.|
|Large and heavy Asian pears. These store well.|
|Some type of apple. |
Wish we knew which kind. Bummer.
We sprayed twice for apple scab, some still appeared. It was an organic spray. We will be more diligent next spring. Spray is applied before the trees flower out over a period of weeks.
|She likes grapes, too. |
The shirt says it all.
|Medium and large red tomatoes.|
|Orange Wellington (round ones) |
and Pineapple tomatoes.
|A Pineapple tomato awaits "the knife".|
|Beautiful on the inside. |
It is segmented like a cross cut pineapple.
|The coloring is wonderful. So is the taste.|
|Bite sized for the taste testing crew. |
They voted "YES" they liked them.
These look great sliced on a pizza.
|First grape harvest. 3-4 kinds in each bag.|
|Top to bottom: |
Sun Sugar, Yellow Pear, Mexico Midget.
|A cart full of delicious things. Cantaloupe watermelon, zucchini, tomatoes, patty pan, cucumbers, |
beans, yellow straight necked squash.
She can't quite make the cart move. Maybe next year.
|Like very large Romas, these "Pear Goliath" are dense |
with less juice than most large tomatoes.
Great for salsas and sauces.
|Lemon cucs, white eggplant, slicing cucs, tomatoes, straight necked summer squash and a cantaloupe.|
Broccoli hides in the top left corner.
|Green zebra tomatoes have a kick. |
A couple of zucs share the box.
|The rinds of the cantaloupe look different. |
They are two varieties.
|A balancing act of cantaloupe and watermelon.|
|Brooks prunes. |
I wish their season was longer. Yum.
|"All Blue", "Red Pontiac", |
and "Yukon Gold" potatoes.
|Anna's lunch for us today. |
We are so spoiled.
|Who needs the spoon in the other hand?|
|Up close, strips of basil, multicolored tomatoes, |
cheese, olives. Oh my gosh. Yumminess.
|Tomatillos. Purple and green ones. |
Cut up and make salsa.
|Oregon State University's new tomato. "Indigo Rose".|
|Serrano peppers. Hot.|
|Chili peppers. Hot.|
|Hungarian wax peppers. Hot.|
|Chocolate bell peppers. Not hot.|
|Jalapeno peppers. Hot.|
|Dahlias, not hot!!!|
