twilight in the garden


A potato in the ground.


A potato in my hand.


Potatoes.


Chopped. With Rosemary from the garden. Later to join olive oil in tin foil on the grill.


Enjoyed the first tomato of the year. It was a Sungold, and it tasted like summer.


Ripening...


This will be a yellow Zucchini someday.


It's been so hot. Wet newspaper and mulch are the only things keeping these plants from certain death.


A Charentais Melon.


A Blacktail Mountain Watermelon.


A Dhalia. The first Dhalia of the summer.


My book The Kitchen Gardens of France says that Dhalias are a traditional flower planted in vegetable gardens. I needed no further convincing.


Zinnia.


Purple Coneflower with bee.


Purple Coneflower in the sun.



Purple Coneflower with pink Hydrangea.
