Molly and I are about to leave for an extended getaway, and so we’re in a rush to get the garden ready for our absence. Molly planted beets, Chinese cabbage, daikon radishes, kale and broccoli so we’d have a winter garden to come home to. The peas we’d harvested earlier have re-seeded themselves, we discovered, so we’ll have a second crop of those in late fall if we are lucky.

We are sad to see our tomatoes aren’t quite ripe yet. Looks like they’ll mostly ripen while we’re away. We hope we’ll have enough to make some pasta sauce and my favorite canned tomatoes when we get back. We’ve harvested onions, garlic, zucchini and cucumbers recently, but our tomato crop just isn’t cooperating with our schedule…

Enjoy the pictures, and enjoy what’s left of summer! It goes so fast.
