So it´s August... and this past weekend felt definitely fall-ish. Where did summer go? But tomato season just started, so there should be a bit of summer left for us, yes?
I am bringing lots and lots of flowers in these days... this cutting garden was the best idea ever! This week we had no less than four bouquets in the kitchen alone.
A particular nice spot in the walled garden.
My lovely stray Mathilda. She is just the cutest. I am already thinking of ways to make their lives more comfortable this winter.
Long time no chicken picture! Let´s remedy this situation.
A few years back we planted my husband´s favorite flower, Rudbeckia nitida, on the border to our neighbor. They love it there, and I think at this time it looks so nice. It´s just a riot of yellow. Especially nice if you squint your eyes. I did that for you in this picture with a wide aperture. You´re welcome.
I´ll repeat myself and say again that this cutting garden was the bestest idea ever.
Chard. I have a feeling that chard will be one of the plants that survive the apocalypse, if you know what I mean. (Sorry if that was mean, chard. Love you.)
This tomato ("Tigerella") is the surprise winner this year. So pretty, so tasty and while all the other plants already have a touch of the blight, these still look pretty good!
The first orange pumpkin! Hello little fellow!
Last but not least, Ludwig says hello. Have a happy week!
