Late-August Vegetable Garden Tour


It’s a busy time of year in my garden; in late August the produce is really starting to flood in, meaning a LOT of kitchen time between now and October!

All the time and effort spent thus far in my garden is really starting to pay off though. We have our own private organic farmer’s market just outside the back gate! Here, I’ll show you…

Let’s start in the fruit “orchard” where we have one apple tree, two peach trees, and three or four grape vines. Believe it or not, these are two of the peach trees I started from seed, documented in this post from 9 years ago! I make the grape jam that I love from the grapes, and have been starting to use our cut-up Winesap apples as the fruit in my morning green shake. Later on, I’ll make big batches of applesauce with them.

    THIS IS POSITIVELY AMAZING!!! What gorgeous produce and what variety!! It’s a beautiful garden–you will not need to hit the produce department in the grocery store for many months!! Great photography, too–everything looks so delicious! 😀

    Thank you snowpeas!!! It feels great to bypass the produce department; I just love that feeling (and taste) of eating my own stuff!!!

    The produce looks beautiful and abundant.
    My computer was in the shop so I’m just catching up on your blog.
