Is summer over?

I certainly hope not. But it really feels like fall right now with overcast skies, rain, and chilly temperatures. The weather people are predicting a warm up over the next few days. I hope they're right. Meanwhile, in the vegetable garden, the green beans are flowering and the little beans are growing. Winter squash is forming, and the tomatoes look ready to ripen. Now we need some more sun.

Green bean blossoms.

The zucchini is not disappointing. We've been eating some nearly every day and I still have about six of them in the kitchen. I may have to process them for the freezer if we can't catch up.

    and our two cats are cuddled up together for the first time in four months, too...
    it must be cold!!

    Our courgettes are just starting... only one ready per day, at the moment...
    so no need to get "What will I do with all these courgettes" down off the shelf...
    YET!!
    But we've got runner beans galore... yummy!!

  2. August 1 is Lammas Day, first day of Autumn in the pagan calander. Here in AZ we are quite happy to see the end of summer.

  3. tim, it's nice to get to eat the fruits of one's labor, eh?

    michael, I'm sure you are. But we're hoping it will hang on for while here. We're not done yet!
