Although my garden seems to be winding down, I took a close look this morning and was surprised to find many beautiful flowers and vegetables continuing to flourish. I also discovered that if I go out there early enough, we really do have a hummingbird flitting about along with the bees and butterflies! The raspberries and snap peas are definately finished, but scarlet runner beans, flowering sweet peas and some of the sunflowers are still attracting insects. Squash and cucumbers are thriving this year as are the tomatoes. Every year I tell myself, and others, I’m only going to put in 2 tomato plants but it never happens. I have a huge “make work” project as I see hundreds of tomatoes beginning to ripen on 8 tomato plants! Soon I will be dropping all these cucumbers and tomatoes on the doorsteps of strangers to avoid the feelings of guilt that always accompany such an abundance of produce that 2 people can’t possibly eat quickly enough!
One needs to have to have a lot of friends when they have a big garden!!
