Dog Days of Summer in Rochester, NY
Wrote this back in early August. I went out to water the plants and it was not posted. Ab it late but the beauty of the plants are shown.
This was a visitor to my garden toward the end of August. I believe it is a red tailed hawk. Hope he is eating the mice and squirrels that seem to be enjoying my root crops.
The summer season ended with a drought and federal disaster area for my county and the surrounding area.
My bush beans are quite happy with the heat wave which lasted the entire summer. My several days a week watering with recycled rubber soaker hoses keep them happy. We have about 10lbs of beans in the freezer for later, the most ever saved. They are still producing which is unusual, normally we take the plants down in mid September.
Another of the prolific vegetables are the bell peppers and the broccoli. A different variety, Jalapeno show below. Especially with the cooler fall temps now and the much needed rain this past week. The broccoli has taken off and we are eating it a few nights a week.
The Holiday season is here. Panda Wear is accepting holiday orders thru 11/1/16 for delivery in December. Please order early.
