    crop out the planter, & i think the shot of the red peppers is calender worthy. so lush & green & full!!!!!


    I was not able to get any zukes either!! Lots and lots of male flowers but no female flowers.

    And then my plant got powdery mildew that spread to my pumpkin and Butternut Squash! I had to pull all three out :( I got only one squash and it made a nice lunch roasted in the oven with some olive oil and butter.


    Such a pretty dahlia. I must admit that I never got around to planting any this year and now I'm regretting it, especially after seeing yours.

    Lucky you to have so many tomatoes and to get a whole lunch including them! I have a few orange Brandywine and that's about it - very disappointing.

    My veggie garden didn't do so hot this year thanks to all the rain we received!

    Petoskystone -- I'll take a better photo of the peppers and see if we can get one for the calendar.

    Araby -- Doesn't it drive you crazy when everyone posts about how they have squash coming out of their ears?!

    GardenJunkie -- I've come round to thinking that the garden actually isn't doing as poorly this year as I thought it was. Love the dahlias too, you should plant some next year. You're in CT, you can have a bunch of my tubers in the spring if you'd like.

    Jennifer -- I hear you on that, but as I said above, it's not quite as bad as I thought it was.


    Gee, my tomatoes are trees also! I do have a few tomatoes though so that is comforting. Love the nasturtiums and the dahlia certainly looks calendar worthy from this chair.

    Layanee -- That makes me feel so much better! But I bet you have a lot of zucchini and cucumbers. The dahlia may be a candidate for the calendar.
