MidSummer Harvests

Purple podded pole beans, Sweetie tomatoes, and marionberries were begging to be picked. I obliged. Yellow pear and Stupice tomatoes are producing steadily as well.

Down past the marrionberry trellis, the beds of dahlias and gladioli are bursting with color. With dahlias, the more I pick the more buds they produce, so I’m bringing in a big bouquet every few days. The 7″ white and lilac, waterlily-shaped ‘Mikayla Miranda’ is today’s favorite.

The gladioli are a great mix of colors in various beds throughout the lower gardens– from deepest velvety red to peach to bright fuchsia to white — and I’ve had fun giving away bunches of these.
