Tomatoes of many kinds. Big ones, little ones, round ones, pear shaped ones, red ones, and yellow ones.
Strawberries!!! Sweet, sweet, sweet!

For the first time this year we are growing beans!
Peppers, peppers, peppers of all types.
Big Jims, Anaheim, Red Bell Peppers, and Jalapenos….
*Not pictured, but honorably mentioned (to keep the garden gods happy and full of blessings for us) are pumpkin, spaghetti squash, apples, and plums.
One of the good things about the end of summer and beginning of fall will be our bounty!
