A Late Summer Garden ~

 Our garden gate is now covered with hops vines…

The hops flowers are very interesting looking...They are pale green and almost resemble a pinecone - though more delicate and "papery."

We are excited to have many grapes this season! They are almost ripe, but already delicious (though still very tart!).

It's been such a treat to have fresh vegetables from our garden. The boys enjoy bringing in our humble harvest, usually around dinner time. 

Cucumbers are one of my favorites from the garden!

The apples are almost ready...

As the lavender is on it's way out, this flowering plant adds color to the front yard.

I'm already dreaming of next year's garden. What will we add? Pumpkins for sure! (I forgot about the pumpkins!! Fortunately we have some amazing local pumpkin farms - but still, it's only a matter of time before our boys ask, "Where are our pumpkins?!" It will give us something to look forward to next  year! :)

Did you have a garden this year? What did the best? What are you planning on adding next season?! 

Hope you have a great late summer day!
