Week 15, September 3, 2013

Zinnias love warm weather with plenty of water.

More zinnias.

Even more.

A bee hiding in the shadow of this dahlia.

Swirls of color. Little critters in the folds.

Inside petals are a different color 
than the ones that have open already. I really like the swirls.

Calla lilies with speckled leaves.

A dahlia sunbathing.

Yellow eggplant. Yup!

Along with a few purple ones.

More critters on a dahlia.

Helpers await more boxes before we head out on my Dad's golf cart. He used it to get around The Farm his last couple years.
I have the BEST crew!


One way to pick out your pumpkin! 
They are posing for me on their orange "chairs".
This pumpkin and the next pictures were taken by my soon to be first grade great nephew. He likes to take pictures and so I handed him the camera. He has a very good eye, I think! 

He caught his cousins sitting and waiting on the golf cart. 
(No key in it, by the way.)

I LOVE this one!!!

I asked him to try and get pictures of all the pumpkins. 
Even these white ones.

The little "Jack Be Little" orange pumpkins and the "Baby Boo" little white ones.

His eye level view of this pretty sunflower.
I really like the way he catches the light.

He saw this one in the view finder of the digital camera after he took it and ran over to show me. 
"I caught the sun" he said. He sure did!

Wow. Love this one, too. 
His height and the light make a great combination.

Another one that shows off the color of the sunflower.

He must have been crawling around under those leaves like crazy!

And then he looked up. Sunflowers from an almost 1st graders viewpoint. I love the colors and the framing and the clouds.

His cousin and little sister in action on the parked golf cart.

Up close sunflower.

His last one is this one showing how white pumpkins are hooked together.

He has passed the camera back to me. 
She loves this little patty pan squash!

Ohhh, the little one is lucky to have her sun hat today.

A cluster of grapes.

These grapes are thick!

Veggie lasagna for lunch today. 
Cheesy and wonderful!

Fresh salsa with avocado. 
This was awesome! We could have eaten it with 
a spoon. No chip needed.

Indigo Rose. Bred by OSU tomato breeders for that "good for you" vegetable goodness. Purple on the outside like a blueberry, with anthocyanins.   Red on the inside and bottom with lycopene.

A variety of grapes sizes, colors, textures, and tastes.

Green zebra tomatoes in the foreground. They are ripe.

Costuloto Genovese tomatoes are crinkly around the edges.
