Come Take a Walk With Me Through My Garden

The Cosmos are displaying their last fashion statement before the cold weather comes to steal their beauty...


Buttercrunch lettuce decked out in a soft pale green...


Green onions waiting patiently for the rain to come and water the soil...


The last of the summer peppers...

Collard greens starting to grow...
Broccoli plants that are being pecked daily by the chickens...



Dark green spinach growing into baby spinach salad...

Cabbage plant that is also suffering from the ferocious pecks of the small flock of chickens...


Heirloom Acres Salad Mix...YUM...

And for our encore is the last of the summer bouquet of Zinnias. I really couldn't find enough to make a full arrangement, but I wanted to bring them into our house for their final show.

My hands have been full this summer...it seems that I have made this statement for the last several summers, but this year has been especially full. I haven't taken the time to enjoy the flowers like I usually do. I will miss them because now that canning season has finished, I am ready to play in the flowers. The problem is that the flowers are all finished too. I guess I will just go look at all of my pretty canned jars filled with food!!

grace and peace,

julie

Thank you all!!! Kay I will do a bread thing and post several recipes. I still need to post my Chimichanga recipe from last week's football fiesta so maybe next week will be a cooking week! Bread is easy and I so treasure the lady who spent time to teach me the art of bread making. I was 23 when she started working with me, and 17 years later she is still sending me bread recipes from her kitchen!
grace and peace,
julie
