Burning bushes begin the color change, as do the sedum 'Autumn joy'. Concord grapes just begin the color change. The mountain ash is loaded with bright orange berries.  My tomatoes are so red and almost ready for harvest. My favorite time of year!

That's an interesting selection of tomatoes Daniel.  One of these years I'll try some kinds other than settling for the volunteer ones that pop-up every year.

Comment by Randall Smith on August 22, 2014 at 8:07am

Not only are tomatoes delicious, but they're so good for you. And so many varieties to grow and taste. I love the little cherries, especially the "chocolate" ones. Your photo, Daniel, makes my mouth water!

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 22, 2014 at 12:24am

Daniel, those are beauties! Wonderful crop. You deserve to be very proud. 

Comment by Daniel W on August 21, 2014 at 9:25pm

The tomatoes are Cherokee Purple, SuperSweet 1000, Sungold, Lemon Boy, and one I forget. I had a Better Boy earlier. It did not survive to be photographed. Possibly my best crop ever.



This okra is "Burgundy", an open-pollinated heirloom. I'm getting a few pods a day from about 10 plants. I love growing these kitchen crops.

Spud and Joan, That rose of sharon is a seedling that grew volunteer from a pink one. I am always planting volunteer shrubs and trees to see what happens.

Plinius that does sound good, sauerkraut with blue cheese and mushrooms. I also like it on rye bread with swiss cheese, onions, and thousand island dressing, grilled.

Joan, that structure adjacent to the sunflowers (see photo) has no name. I cobbled it up with spare wood and metal (roof). It's my "reflection spot", overlooking my garden. Maybe I should call it my smoke house, now that I bought some pipe tobacco yesterday. I haven't smoked for I don't know how long--20 years? But the urge hit me. I figured every once in awhile, at my age, it shouldn't really harm me. Hmmm.

Joan, the Rose of Sharon picture is from Daniel's blog.  

After you asked that question, I realized I should have said that, and maybe got Daniel's permission to post it here.

I also love the color and pattern.

Chris, your "sauerkraut is good with blue cheese and mushrooms" sound delicious. I like each one of those flavors; I have never tried them together. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 18, 2014 at 11:50pm

Randy, having the space to allow a huge clump of sunflowers is a real asset. Yours is so pretty and the room beside it must be a wonderful place to sit. Is it a porch? or a gazebo type structure? I am guessing they are at least 10 feet high or more.
