My Crops, Rose, Pie, Dills & Elderberry


Monday I picked all this!  I am surprised at the amount that I am still getting.  We got just a wee bit of rain and now it is hot and humid and suppose to remain that way for a few days.


Tuesday I harvested a little of this and a little of that.  That was the rest of the carrots from one of the carrot boxes.


I am getting more tomatoes that I thought I would!  There are two cucumbers under the tomatoes.  That pink thing on the right is a zinnia.  It got accidentally knocked over so brought it in the house and put it in a vase.  Little spinach and a kale in the bowl with the lettuce for my salad.  I am trying to stretch my lettuce as I don't have much growing and it is too hot to plant some more!


Greens, tomatoes, strawberries, couple cukes, beans and a red pepper.  I am leaving some of the green peppers on the bush and they are turning red.  Usually I pick them when they are green.  This is what I harvested on Saturday.


A beautiful pink rose.  Smells so good too.  What can I say!!!!  Guess I am spoiled!


No, this was not a bribe for the rose!  I made the blackberry pie after I received the rose!  My blackberries have done so well this year!


Made up another half batch of freezer dills.  My freezer is so full!  Guess that is nothing to complain about!


Do you think my "wonderful gardener" cut this elderberry bush back far enough???  Chuckle, chuckle!

What a great harvest you are getting too. The carrots look nice and fat! I love pie. I hope my raspberries produce enough for me to make another one soon!

Hi Shawn Ann, This is my best year ever to grow carrots! I didn't know if hubby would like the blackberry pie but he does! A winner! Thanks for commenting! Nancy

Lovely, Nancy! I'd trade you some of my yellow squash for a piece of that pie, LOL!

Nancy, another great looking harvest!! It really looks great, that pie sounds delicious. Freezer dills? Did I read that right. I'd love to see that recipe, I have a fridge full of cucumbers and I haven't had time to can pickles so they are going bad. If I can freeze them that might solve all my problems. Send me the recipe if you get a chance. (or link it to me if it's on your blog) Thanks!!

Nancy that pie looks absolutely delicious! I'm amazed you are still getting all those nice berries. Your vegetables look great, especially those beautiful carrots!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Thank you nutmeg gardener! My hubby loved the pie and I think the end is coming to the berries soon! Best carrots I have ever been able to grow this year! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

Yum. Blackberry pie. I did make a gooseberry pie for myself the other day, but mostly I've been eating melon for dessert.

Audrey said...

Hi Nancy ... so glad that your garden is still producing. I am in the mood to plant a Fall garden, but doubt if I am organized enough to do that. Still too many weeds to deal with.
I'll just enjoy seeing what you harvest for now.
The pie looks so good.
Blessings,

Hi Daphne, Blackberry pie is good but melon is healthier and I like melon too! Thanks for commenting! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Audrey, I don't have much enthusiasm to plant a fall garden but like to try to keep lettuce and spinach and a little kale going. Do you live close enough to share! Thanks for commenting! Nancy

Hi Carol from Polka Dot Closet, One would think that but he brought the rose a few days before he "trimmed" the bush! Glad you could visit! Nancy
