end of september garden

despite the cooler temperatures, the garden is still thriving. we're harvesting tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, green beans, yellow squash and some herbs. i didn't take as many home garden as community garden photos this year, but i do have some to show you from last month. 

on the last day of summer, i added sunflowers to an autumn wreath. it's my farewell summer, hello fall wreath. it hung just a few hours until the flowers wilted, so i'm glad i took a picture.

this dark outside by 7 pm business is for the birds, but i'm doing my best to embrace the change. oh what would i do without you, winter squash?=)

some of my favorite ways to enjoy winter squash:

sweet sage acorn squash (or with walnuts - walnuts and sage mimic a sausage flavor.)
kabocha squash (simple is best - i like mine roasted with just a sprinkle of salt.)
pumpkin seeds (most winter squash seeds can be prepared this way!)
squash and greens
stuffed butternut squash
spaghetti squash
sweet fall slaw


  1. Our garden gave us a few eggplants last week, that was the last of it. My hubby is ripping it out this weekend. So sad!! :(

  2. your garden is beautiful...and so serene!

    omg i love her!!!! kati is amazing...

    i am having spaghetti squash for lunch today!

  3. I love all your beautiful pictures. Especially the one of the kitty and the beautiful wreath!! Thanks for sharing Kell!

  4. great job on the wreath. I love the kitty and flower pictures.

  5. Oh, herbs and flowers--I hope to be able to grow them this Fall/winter down here. The ants always seem to attack my herbs in pots. Perhaps I'll have to put them in the square foot garden this year.
    Beautiful pics and wreath. Hello kitty....soooooo cute!
    Peace and Raw Health,

  6. I know your place was in direct path of the storm so hope that everything made it ok and no significant damage.
