Jack-o’-lantern

Okay, a day late. But I love the cheeriness of its smile. May all the spooky times be over with!

Ready for the big night, a Halloween pumpkin is transformed into a smiling creature

The moon in the trees

Autumn at night is beautiful, too. Can you see the dark side of the moon, softly glowing?

Three roses

While natural light is my fave, here’s some person-made light illuminating my bouquet of garden roses.

Two bouquets

Another rose photo of the flowers I had to pick before the big rains here in Seattle. A lot of rain ruins roses.

Cut your roses before a big rain

I have over a dozen rose bushes out front, and I love to look out at them, preferring to leave them where others can also enjoy them. But a big rain is predicted (2-3″ in a couple of days), and I know that it will just beat up and ruin all the opened ones, so what could I do? I had to pick them.

Rainbow harvest

Finally we’re getting some warm, sunny weather in Seattle. The tomatoes are loving it!

Why I fertilize

I’ve been gardening for a long time, now in the Seattle area. I add compost every year or so, and I water regularly. But I also want good vegetable production from two pretty small beds. Here’s the results of adding about a cup of Dr. Earth Rose & Flower food per plant (!) when I planted this Sungold cherry 10″ tomato start in the late spring. It’s been cool this year, so they’re just starting to really get ripe. It’s been worth the wait.

Fuzzy peaches

I’m a big fan of planting fruit trees. Even if you’re renting. Ever since I wound up living in one rented home with a huge yard for over ten years, and realized I could have had a whole orchard back there, I’ve planted fruit trees. They do take a long time, but time passes, right? This curl-free peach tree (‘Frost’) is about 4 or 5 years old. There are only a couple of dozen peaches, if that. But they are such heaven!

Fuzzy home-grown peaches, so perfumed!

Lemon cucumbers

If you have never eaten lemon cucumbers, poor you. They are delicious! They are called that because when you let them (over)ripen, they appear the size and shape of lemons, but still taste like regular cucumbers. As a public service announcement I offer the correct stage to pick them. They should have just a tiny hint of yellow starting. Select ones in the store at this color; do not buy if dark yellow. The inner seeds are hardly developed at all. So tender, sweet and crunchy! Rub off the little prickly things and you can even eat the skin at this stage, but I do peel them. Let’s hear it for backyard gardening!

Box of peaches

Our local Trader Joe’s has had magnificent peaches this year. I noticed that they are even MORE beautiful than the illustration on the packaging, which is saying something! Hope you are enjoying your summer fruit in this unusual, to say the least, year.

Heavenly yellow peaches, the best part of summer

Backyard flowers

I know this is similar to a recent post, but I love this photo, too! We had a few days of sun in Seattle, and with a lot of cloudy and cool weather this year, the sunshine is so glorious. My flowers think so, too.
