|The September garden didn't look very pretty, even though it was greener than the past summer, since we finally received rain.|
|One of the pea harvest.|
|Even in difficult times, at least the end of October's colors were fabulous: |
Here's the juneberry, dressed in fire, and the birch in the background sporting a vibrant yellow.
|Since I don't have many pictures of gorgeous|
vegetables, I'll show you flowers.
The valerian stretched to the border of my
balcony. It's a favorite of bees.
I talked many times already about my fruit trees' failure to produce something, but one I haven't mentionned yet was the golden raspberry patch. Even thought it gave me some fruits throughout the season until november as their usual, it was only a berry or two at a time and their flavor wasn't as good as previous years, acidic and not as sweet as usual. A gardener's snack, no more.
|Rose petals made a delightful harvest aimed at|
perfuming baths for everyone in the house.
|One harvest of tomatoes and green beans.|
|One harvest of camomile growing throughout my lawn.|
They soaked in water to make sure no insect was hidding in them.
I make herbal teas out of those.
|This year's squash, the Burgess from Veseys,|
and calendula flowers (Calendula Officinalis) drying in a bowl in the foreground.
|A couple of minutes in the microwave and popcorn!|
My grocery store happened to have this variety of corn too, so I bought more
to make a bigger snack.
|Find the butterflies (Vanessa Kershawi, if I rely on my google-foo) in the mint patch!|
