Colors of Summer- Produce

I am very short on blog time right now. 
So here are some colors of summer.
Fresh produce from the garden
in reds, greens and creams.

The chickens are the beneficiaries of our cherry tomatoes most often.
These are volunteers from last season.
The chicks love to grab them and run, hoping no other hen steals it away,

Tomatillos await salsa making.

The young watermelon wasn't really ripe, 
although I don't know if it was going to get there anyway,

But here is my pride and joy.  
The deer must have forgotten,
surely they ate every green leaf and flower that the beans put forth.
My first beans.
This is it.
Just a handful.

I'll be sporadic until things calm down here. 
(more about that in later blog posts)
We've got lots of rain coming the next few days, remnants of the hurricane.
It's supposed to be quite a few inches but spread over three days.
Maybe the garden will have a second spurt.

Happy Labor Day Weekend .

Something about the end of summer/fall as the colors start appearing. I saw a big mass of rain heading your way, maybe it won't all come in one day.

Better spread over the weekend than all at once!
Have a wonderful, safe weekend!

Love your tomatillos! Mine never produced that well.
Enjoy your weekend and I hope you don't get the rain all at once!
