A little peak into our community garden.
Yesterday, we harvested our first tomatoes from the Otsiningo Park Community Garden in Binghamton, New York. It's finally tomato season here in upstate New York - a fleeting few weeks of tomato bliss. These tomatoes, incidentally, were consumed as soon as I took their picture.
Our tomato plants are loaded with flowers.
the cold winds of fall start blasting in my mind, even as the hot sun of summer warms me. After all, these are - winter squash.
And winter rules here with a heavy hand. We are out of its grip for a few short months.
Our sunflowers, many of them volunteers, fill our garden plots and fill my vase at home.
Tomorrow, we plan to plant borage seeds, supplied to us by a fellow blogger. We haven't seen their blue in our garden for almost 30 years - why?
But our plants are blissfully unaware that they are in danger.
The community garden we've been gardening in for many years may be closing. This may be its last season.
If this comes about, this is the second community garden that has folded on us in our almost 30 years living in the Binghamton, New York area.
We've suspected this for a while and now it appears the end may be coming.
I will blog about this more another time. But for now, we enjoy summer while we may.
