Do you mind if this is another garden tour?
Things are looking so much better now that the cooler weather has blessed us.
(These are the Picotee cosmos blooming in the turnip patch)
There's more than Tatsoi growing out there now, thank goodness! Even Matilda was getting a little tired of it. You can vaguely see the yellow flowers of the bolting Extra Dwarf Pak Choy in the distance (I do wish the photo quality was better) and this year I've been realizing that pretty much the only difference between Baker Creek's Bok Pak Choy and Extra Dwarf Pak Choy seems to be that the Extra Dwarf stuff just bolts and becomes inedible much, much sooner. Ethan is very pleased. He has always been scornful of the Extra Dwarf Pak Choy.
Although a bit frosted, the pumpkins are still alive and flowering. Some of them have even set some fruit, although I've been much too busy to poke around and see if they are keeping them.
The peas, the peas! Despite the best efforts of the ants and what must be now a very tasty pea-sprout fed rabbit(s), they are starting to climb. Ethan and Mr. McGregor (the .22) have been vigilant, but we've seen no signs of the culprit(s). A good rabbit dinner(s) might make up for it. Please forgive the s's in parenthesis, but it's like Will Cuppy says about mice, you can never have just one.
See, it's all looking slightly more cheerful, except maybe the pumpkins. They might become a bed for lettuce and beets, anyway, we'll have to see.
