From the cutting garden I now have the asters of August on my kitchen table.
The sweet peas decided to recover from the earlier heat and bloom again, reaching for the sky.
The cucumbers are still producing as they climb their wire trellis.
And the tomatoes are slowly ripening. Last night we had our first calabrese salad, with fresh tomaotes and basil from the garden combined with fresh motzarella chese and olive oil. Yum.
Because I'm still healing from hand surgery I am "forced" to just enjoy our garden, without working in it, pick and arrange the abundant flowers, and lend A hand in helping Tom prepare meals that include fresh produce from the garden and fruits from farmer's markets.
What a great time of the year it is!
