My mom has done an amazing job of keeping up the garden we planted. It has been a long time since I gave you a tour! I encourage you to look back at the initial garden tour for a comparison between then and now…
Side Garden: tomatoes, currants, peppers, grapes, echinacea and other flowers, and sweet potatoes vining from the deck
Side Garden: Tomatoes, tomatillos, and currants
Side Garden: Strawberries and tea (camellia sinensis)
Main Backyard Garden: From Above
Main Backyard Garden: Deep within – apple tree, potatoes, tomatoes, squash, peppers, artichokes, flowers
Sea of Potatoes – several types
Squash: white pattypan, tromboncino, and acorn
Sea of Garbanzos (Aren’t they beautiful?)

Sweetpotato Vines (Anyone know how to harvest them?)
And in case you’re curious, here is a sample daily harvest…
Late August Daily Harvest: Lemon cucumbers, tromboncino squash, green zebra tomatoes, cherry tomatoes (white, orange, and black), san marzano and japanese black trifele tomatoes, white pattypan squash, broccoli di chico, collards, rainbow chard, green pepper, purple podded beans, and pasilla peppers.
Not bad, eh?
