Just a Taste of My Garden Before Stacking Wood

Some of the snap peas got away from me and are now becoming the seeds for next year. I am leaving them on the vine until they are fully ripe and dry then collecting them and setting aside.
DSC_0001I planted purple pole beans this year as a trial. I must say they are beautiful but the true worth will be known once they are ready to eat.

The zucchini is late this year but they grow so quickly that this first little one will be ready by the end of the week and there are plenty of blossoms too.

The Italian peppers are coming along nicely, here is the first one that may be picked green if I get impatient. These beauties are golden when ripe.DSC_0012
The hops are looking good but I need an expert. I am going to contact our local microbrewery, Relic Brewery, and offer the hops to them.

The Elderberry bush-tree is both in bloom and forming berries.
