Looking back at Summer’s garden

Summer Harvest, August 2007, Jade Leone Blackwater


Tomato Harvest, August 2007, Jade Leone Blackwater


These images were taken in August, when our garden was just entering its peak production.  For those of us in the northern hemisphere, the cold months are well on their way in for November.

This season we’ll be discussing how to prepare your garden for the next spring and summer, and how to plan for next year’s autumn and winter garden using a simple, friendly tool: the cold frame.

Since the cold months are generally less colorful, we’ll take lots of looks back at the summer garden to help keep us dreaming of next year’s growth!

I just got over the flu, so next week: natural remedies for the common cold.


Good health!

  1. The bounty looks plentiful and beautiful! 🙂

  2. Geraldine, it always amazes me how much a tomato plant can produce. We made insalata caprese, oodles of tomato sauce, and added tomatoes at every meal for months – and there was still plenty to share with friends!
