August Harvest: Yellows, Oranges and Reds


Squash, squash blossoms, runner bean tepees, kale babies – our Seattle garden is prolific right now. Everywhere you look, there’s a festival of color. Here’s some of what’s growing so happily right now.

So cool to see the flower turn into the vegetable.

Look at that color! We love it, and so do the bees and hummingbirds!

What’s that, in the understory below the runner beans? It’s the kale babies!

The carrots need some thinning. We ate a few sweet thin baby carrots, harvested in the name of making room for the rest of them.

  1. You have a gorgeous garden. I’m so jealous! Because of the hens we have to grow any edibles in the front garden, screened from the street behind some tallish flowering shrubs. It has been so wet and cool that only the sorrel, black kale and blueberries have survived. It’s lovely now but too late for the tomatoes and beans to mature.
