Finally, after languishing for months in the field garden, the pumpkins have taken off and are covered with beautiful squat green pumpkins. If all goes well we'll have more Musquee De Provence pumpkins than we can give away. Fingers Crossed! Musquee De Provence pumpkins are a French Heirloom vegetable.
There are still quite a few fall pears clinging to the tree. Thankfully there were no storms this year!!!
Green beans in the dew.
Another view of the green beans dripping with a heavy dew. The humidity has been so high this past week that just a few moments in the garden leaves me wringing wet and needing a shower. Happily we have had a recent two day reprieve with cooler temps and lower moisture.
The citrus is just about ready to harvest. My neighbor Sandy is picking Satsumas for her stand already!
These are purple hull peas grown from seed saved last year. I'm very pleased with the results.
One of it's beautiful large blossoms.....
.....and some baby peas forming! My husband thinks purple hull peas beat black eye peas hands down in the taste department.
Little winged creatures have been prolific in the garden lately. I love watching them.
This is a Gulf Fritillary Butterfly. Their host plant is Passion Flower vine or May Pops. Every year I have clouds of them emerge from the vines covering the back fence.
