a few of my favorite things

Just in case you were worried about my ability to sleep (ok, you weren’t, I know) It dropped to 52F last night. This is why most VT houses don’t have AC… And it seems like a good reason to count my blessings, so here are a few of my favorite things – the summer edition!

tall sunflowers
sunflowers taller than me

nasturtiums
Hidden jewels

scarlet runner beans
Showy jewels

corn and beans
Corn and beans co-existing

a single plum
A single plum (on the whole tree)

hops
Home grown hops

strawberry peach
Summer jams (strawberry peach, in the jars and NOT caramelized!)

wildflowers
Successful wildflower plantings

  1. Such lovely photos. Hooray for cool nights (and non-caramelized jam!)

  2. So glad the wildflowers are flowering!

  3. HOPS, yum! We tried the 3 sisters thing this year and the beans pummeled the corn! Did you start your corn much earlier?
