Here on the urban homestead we are slowing saying goodbye to summer crops – though we are still harvesting beans, peppers, eggplants, tomatoes and a few squashes the garden is going thru a major transition to cooler weather crops – garlic, onions, potatoes, carrots, broccoli, greens and more.

We are enjoying cool morning, evenings and sunny, warm afternoons – perfect gardening weather.

Winding down on the preservation front since the bulk of the harvest is pretty much over.

With our pantry shelves stocked and fall seeds planted we look forward to a much slower pace season hoping to turn our efforts into other projects that need our attention.

  3. Chicago Mike says:

    Alright, I am thoroughly stumped. I have no idea what that third picture is of. Any help?

    It’s good to have the cycle of the seasons. If the entire year were spent at the pace of the late summer garden season, we would all be on the floor from exhaustion. Everything looks good (as usual!) in the garden.

    The 3rd picture is summer squash or some version thereof.
