9.3.12 Summer’s end

The rosa rugosa hedges are now laden with rose hips, their detritus scattered throughout the garden, left behind by those putting away seeds for the winter.

Still harvesting: Tomatoes, cucumbers, summer squash, eggplant, filet beans, kale, chard, lettuces, arugula, radishes.
Last of: Fava beans.
To come: Fennel, shell beans, Delicata squash, leeks, potatoes, celeriac, fall planting.

    It is definitely feeling like fall in my garden, even though we are actually enjoying a stretch of more summerlike weather… there is no mistaking the much shorter days and the cooler nights that come with a longer period of darkness. All the fall crops are happily growing along though, so I will embrace the change of seasons and savor what this transition period has to offer.

    What a beautiful still-life! Fall is my favorite season, even so, the end of summer is always so poignantly sad.

      I haven’t in a while, but I’ll miss this summer, it’s been a good one. But I’m like you, Azita, I favor fall and the season’s ingredients and cooler weather to cook in.

    You are still getting a good and varied harvest. Yes, the days are surely getting shorter and the nights cooler.

    Wonderful photo! It sounds like you still have plenty of good things to harvest and more to come.

    Neat photograph. Looks like the critters have been enjoying the rose hips. Great, just stay away from the garden.

    It sounds like we have our most favoured seasons at the same time – for me Spring and for you Fall. Hope you enjoy it as much as i enjoyed that photo.
