We have been still enjoying raspberries!

Along with some other veggies!

Even had a few small strawberries!  Guess I need to replace my plants next spring!

We sure do enjoy fresh coleslaw!  Hoping to harvest another couple of these.

I was gifted a half bushel of tomatoes.  Thought some of them looked so pretty in the basket that I just had to take a picture!

Canned up 14 quarts of tomato juice.  Here are a few of them.

Coco was jumping the little picket fence and eating my carrots so had to pull them out of there and took the picket fence down.  She is now checking to make sure I got them all and wondering how she can get over to the next box to pull them out!

We had a little visitor.  Sophia came to stay overnight while her mommy went away.

We went to a family reunion this past week-end.  Then we stopped to have lunch with my brother and sister on the way home.  Guess I did too much partying as I am wiped out tonight.  See you next week!!

Great looking produce.

Hope you get rested up and ready for a new month!!

I wish I would get big bowls of raspberries like that. I have been getting a few, but just a handful at a time.

Replacing my Fort Laramie strawberries is also on my to do list, although I'm not sure if I'll be doing that next year. They produce well as a June crop, but I really wanted to have an everbearer that also gave me some berries in late summer to.

Hi Granny Marigold, Thanks! Went on a little vacation over the week-end so wiped out now! Hoping to regain this week! Need to picked my produce today again. Nancy

Hi Daphne, Sorry you aren't getting more raspberries. That is one thing that we seem able to grow without too much effort. Nancy

Hi Margaret, We don't have enough everbearing to freeze but it is nice to have some through the summer. We buy to freeze. Good luck! Nancy

Your vegetables are so pretty. My garden was really a disappointment this summer. Cocoa is cute as can be.

Hi Henny Penny, Thanks! I am sorry your garden did not do well. Mine could have done better but thankful for what we got. Coco is cute but can be a pest!!! Nancy

Hi Nancy.

Thanks so much for coming to visit my blog today. That was a nice surprise.

I enjoyed your blog, too.

We used to have a Big Boy like the one shown in your last photo but the restaurant closed quite awhile ago. They had good hamburgers.

Your fresh veggies look luscious.

Come by any time! Susan

Hi Susan, Thank you for returning my visit. That Big Boy was in Davison, Michigan. Fresh veggie season is just about to end! I will be back to visit you! Nancy

Progress in the Courtyard!

  It was so nice to look out my bedroom window this morning and see the Clematis blooming instead of a pile of snow.  It is a rainy day agai...
