The garden is moving into its fall mode. My lone Thelma Sanders squash is getting bigger, but it hasn’t been joined by any others.
There are blossoms all around it, but no other squash. Could be a real bust.
I have a few dozen green tomatoes left out there.
Since it will still be warm for a while, I am hoping they ripen. Otherwise, green tomato pesto pasta, or maybe that green tomato bacon jam.
The basil has continued to flourish, even as I keep cutting it.
The African blue basil is putting out new growth.
The fall greens have started to spread in their boxes. I have chard and arugula out there.
This is the ruby chard. I may mix it with the French sorrel from the CSA box and make a quiche. It may be getting close to October but there is quite a bit left to harvest, on these lovely crisp days. We do need rain, though. I have been watering things again.
Now that I’ve seen your photo, I realize that this week’s chard from the One Straw CSA is ruby chard.
In eastern HoCo, rain has started late this afternoon.
You are great with plants. I’m trying to grow something in my veranda in Japan, but the weather is so different from Italy.
This year I’ve managed to have surviving rosemary and basil, plus some other strong fellows.
You have a “pollice verde” (green thumb)! =)
