Will this be the last harvest?


Every week I keep thinking I won't get much more from the garden and every week I seem to pick something!  More beans!  But I really do think this is about it!



Picking fewer and fewer raspberries.   Ground is dry and no rain lately so they are probably about done.



Making fresh cole slaw from the cabbage.  Might have one more tiny one out there yet.  Found a few strawberries and picking a little lettuce for our sandwiches.



Asian pears from our little pear trees.  Some are good and some are not but the ones that are good are soooo delicious!



Now what does Coco have in her mouth????  Three guesses!  I didn't shut the garden gate tight and my vegetarian dog snuck in and snitched a green tomato!  And yes, she ate it!!



"Wonderful Gardener" is tearing out my pole beans for me.  Coco knows she is not suppose to go in the garden so is waiting and hoping he will throw her a bean!



One more picture!  I had not made granola in a long time.  So many things do not sound good to me so thought I would try granola for breakfast again!  Thanks for visiting!!

I was thinking the same thing with my cucumbers at the beginning of September. They looked like they wouldn't give me anymore, but they just kept on.

Hi Daphne, It sure would be nice if they would still give just a few a week now!! Nancy

LOL your doggie loves vegetables that is so cute! Your raspberries are lovely! So is all your other produce! Our garden is done here before a lot of areas get a good going on it.. We start earlier and are done earlier. Heat ya know. I hated digging up all my raspberry plants but after several years of them not making I figured there was a reason no one grows them here LOL. The plants will live, but they won't make. Again I think its the heat here. Just to darn hot for to darn long. But I can grow blackberries really well here!

Hi Texan, Thanks for visiting and commenting! Besides the raspberries I have tried to grow thornless blackberries. They grew but we didn't really care for the berries and since I live on a lot I decided that was one thing I could give up. Can't keep up because of Lyme disease this year. We don't have as much heat as long as you but we do have a few days of it! Ugh! Always nice to be out in the garden when I can! Nancy

Those beans are determined to bear right till the end of September, I think. That jar of granola looks good. I should make some again one of these days.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Granny Marigold, I guess it will be the end of Sept. in just four more days. Can you believe it!! I put the cup of coconut flakes in this time that it called for but think next time a half cup would be enough. I used the unsweetened coconut. Nancy

Jenny said...

Gorgeous berries and pears, and very lovely beans.

Henny Penny said...

I just love that picture of Cocoa with the tomato. He is a beautiful dog. Your garden has really done good. I picked enough beans Saturday to cook a small pot, but a lot of the beans had bug bites. Tasted good once I got them cooked.

Margaret said...

For some reason, this fall seems to be lasting a lot longer than usual...or maybe that's just me. I don't really have that many past falls in the garden to compare it with. Thanks for the granola reminder - I haven't made it in a while either.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Jenny, Thanks!! Nice to have you visit. My little garden is nothing compared to all you grow!! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Henny Penny, I love that particular photo of Coco also. And he is a she! LOL Madame Coco! LOL I think my beans are about done now too, and I guess I am a little tired of eating them about now! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Margaret, Are we glad that fall seems to be lasting longer or not!! I do look forward to putting the garden to bed but will miss the fresh produce! Hope you got your granola made! Nancy

Audrey said...

Nancy ... I always enjoy seeing what you have harvested. Everything still looks good. Funny Coco ... eating green tomatoes !!!. I like green tomatoes too ... only fried.
Take care ... hope you get to feeling better.
Hugs,

Hi Audrey, Thanks again for your kind words. I imagine Coco would also eat green tomatoes fried! Don't seem to be improving. Might be a long haul. Nancy

NanaDiana said...

Great pictures. I don't think I ever heard of a dog eating a green tomato! lol Maybe you could take that show on the road! Hope you have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

Rosie said...

So cute your dog loves veggies! All I get are goats and sheep after mine and they are not so cute!

How do you make granola! I'd love to do that!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi NanaDiana, Thanks! Coco could get almost anything I think. I have to be careful what I plant in the back yard as she even ate my hostas to the ground! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Rosie, Thank you for visiting me! Hope you will come again. Coco will eat almost anything. Eating and being loved is her main goals in life!! Lol I will try to let you know how I make my granola. It is from the "A Family Raised on Sunshine" book by Beverly Nye. Page 59. Nancy

Pom Pom said...

Aw! Coco is so cute! I can see why you spoil her.
Granola making is fun. I haven't done it in a long time. I had a good recipe from the old cookbook titled More With Less Cookbook. Did you ever read it?
It's nice to meet you! Thank you for coming by my blog!

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Pom Pom, Thanks for commenting! Yes, I have the More With Less Cookbook. The recipe I have been using if from Beverly Nye's "A Family Raised on Sunshine". I will have to check the More with Less book to see if I would like that one better. Nancy
