Tuesday Garden Party for September 8th

Welcome to this week’s Tuesday Garden Party! I hope you are harvesting quite a bit from your garden right now. This week we continued to get lots of tomatoes ripening. We harvested our very first zucchini. Yeah, I know it’s late in the season but I’m glad to at least get one. We might have a few more before the growing season is over.

The flowers blooming in our garden.

I took a few photos of flowers in our garden this week. I amazed at how the hydrangea just keeps blooming. I also have a few annuals that I thought were dead, from all the heat, even though I kept them watered, but they are looking better. With the cooler weather, they are starting to bloom nicely again which is so nice to see.

Jami is hosting this week and she’s sharing about the flowers in her garden too. Plus we have some great features for you this week. If you missed last week’s party you can check it out here.

From your host today, Jami at An Oregon Cottage:

The lovely flowers in Jami's garden.

Sometimes I think we overlook plants that come into their own in September for all the flowers of spring and early summer – I know I used to when I was a new gardener. But look at just some of the beauty to be had this month! The hydrangeas (this is ‘Little Lime’ if you can believe it – not so little, huh?) are turning pink-mauve, zinnias are spilling over paths,  asters are blooming in all shades of pink and purple, and the bees are covering our Blue Mist shrubs (Caryopteris) which burst into bloom just a few weeks ago. Nice, right?

In other gardening news, I’m woefully lacking in any type of fall garden. Sigh. I had great plans to get some seeds started for lettuce, cauliflower, cabbage, and a few others, but the window has passed unless I find some to buy at a nursery or something. Which, let’s just be honest, is not going to happen since I’ve been to exactly one nursery all season. There are just too many other things on my plate right now – like dealing with all my tomatoes. (Shoot. I wasn’t going to go there again…)

Right. Let’s get to the features from last week, then!

  1. The garden has froze, but I got most of it into the cold cellar. I just finished 10 gallons of beans, most of the corn (I think we’ll try to eat the rest as I’m sick of canning it), 4 buckets of tomatoes in my mud room and 2 wheelbarrows of green tomatoes in the cold cellar waiting to ripen. It’s a busy season. I look forward to seeing what you do with all your tomatoes!
