August garden

I tried this new tomato this year, it is called Pink Brandywine. I pick them like this and n a day or so they are pink all over and delicious.  I only saw them for sale at one place, Sacka's greenhouse on Inkster Road near Sibley. 

This is my wild garden.  You can see the red okra  toward the front.  It is pretty and when cooked is just like any other okra.
This is my favorite phase of the sunflower.  Look at all the little rows so perfectly spaced.  The little yellow finches come every day for lunch.

I hope you are having a good summer!

I love sunflowers like this too. They look like a cityscape for tiny life forms. :)

Never heard of purple okra. Interesting. I love how the yellow finches grab the sunflowers seeds in my yard. Janice

I could sit and look at your garden for ages! I will go to my iPad later where I think I can enlarge the photos and drool some more. Everything is hot and dry and mostly BROWN here in Texas! Even the WEEDS are drying up!!!
