By my way of looking at it, this is a pretty good growing year. After a long cold spring, most of the summer has brought great weather. Not too hot or humid, just warm, sunny, and pleasant, with cool nights – a reminder of why in the days before air-conditioning, people would come north to New England for the summer. The soil is dry now, and a rainy day or two would be good, but still, I’ll take it! So many things have grown so well this season (and it’s not QUITE over!) that I wanted to share a few.
Orange flowers and vegetables are everywhere this year!
Mostly I like them, some, well, with so many great petunias to choose from, why would you plant this one:But on to other abundant things!
More raspberries (almost) than I could put up, in my home garden.
A second cutting of hay in South County:
Hornet’s nests, big and beautiful in their own way:
Flowers and fruit of all kinds.
Did something grow really well for you this year? I’d love to hear about it!
