This is my worst time of year for the garden. I don't like how so many things are starting to fade, and everything looks scruffy. There isn't much new growing, and the sun and heat have taken their toll.
Here is the late summer garden after some cleanup.
The herb bed is looking amazing! I have already harvested a giant mass of basil and have some pesto in the freezer.
Medusa continues to exist...
Now why is that Zinnia growing UP?
The flowering onion saves the fall!
Zinnia are new this year, and I need more!
Even the butterflies like the Zinnia.
