It has been the sunniest and warmest summer we've had since moving to the Seattle area 15 years ago! It reminded me of summers growing up in Northern California.
Our garden loved all of the sunshine (our grass, not so much)!
Here is the garden gate, covered in vines and hops...
Once the hops fade to a golden brown, I love bringing them inside to decorate with. The hops vines add texture and a touch of nature to mantels and shelves.
It was a happy morning when our youngest discovered "his" corn was ready! This was our first corn - we had tried last year but it didn't grow. He shucked each ear excitedly and ran it into the house... :)
We are also enjoying watching our first watermelon grow!
Along with our first pumpkins...
Zucchini has grown in abundance.
Grapes grow along our back fence. This type is a little tart, but our boys like snacking on them. Our chickens love them too! ;)
Thank you for stopping by today and taking a peek into our garden. Did you plant a garden this year? Did you try anything new? What did the best? I'd love to hear!
