Shabby September

After a riotous summer my garden is looking decidedly shabby. I like to think it is shabby chic, but it really just a bit worn out and yellowing around the edges.

My green beans look on the verge of collapse, but every other day produce another handful of tastey beans. There are tiny cauliflowers hiding amongst the woody beetroots, a few gherkin cucumbers are lurking in the weeds and some monster pumpkins are showing a tease of orange beneath the mildewed leaves. Nothing is as plump and fresh as it was, but my seemingly exhausted garden just keeps giving!

    Luckily for me, I have wonderful friends who share the bounty of their gardens. I do, however, have a luscious basil plant that finally got happy and is accompanying all the lovely tomatoes from others’ gardens! Plus the air is crisp already here in Pennsylvania, which I do so love!
