More vegetables

A bountiful harvest!

An earlier post showed lots of pictures of the tomatoes and peppers we planted.  This one is a tribute to the other things--zucchini, yellow squash, green beans and herbs.

Not just veggies...

In addition to veggies, we tried planting flowers.  We had pinkish-purple hydrangeas (next year I'll try to make them bluer); white hydrangeas, and the butterfly bush we planted last summer really took off this year.  It did attact lots of butterflies.

Also around this time...
We went to London from October 23-28 and were happy to see a decent amount of fresh veggies on our plates!

Farewell to Summer


The growing mountain of leaves in the driveway means we are in the heart of fall now. But the real farewell to summer is coming today when we clean out the dead plants in the garden. Here's a tribute to our first veggie garden ever!!

Bumble Lush is a food and garden blog.  We began experimenting with growing our own fruits and vegetables in 2009 and informally documented our progress.  This is our online garden journal for 2010 and beyond.
