Gardening is mysterious Randy.  Perhaps the corn maturing at nearly the same time is because the ones planted after it was warmer, grew faster and matured faster.

Speaking of loaded branches, one of my two fruit bearing persimmon trees has an overabundance of the honey colored gems. Limbs are drooping and, I'm afraid, will begin breaking off. I've already had to prop up the whole tree with a 2 by 6 15' board. And the strange thing is, the other tree has just a few persimmons on it. I have no explanation.

It's like my sweet corn: I staggered plantings 5 weeks apart, but the whole plot seemed to mature at nearly the same time. Another mystery of nature.

Burning bushes begin the color change, as do the sedum 'Autumn joy'. Concord grapes just begin the color change. The mountain ash is loaded with bright orange berries.  My tomatoes are so red and almost ready for harvest. My favorite time of year!

That's an interesting selection of tomatoes Daniel.  One of these years I'll try some kinds other than settling for the volunteer ones that pop-up every year.

Not only are tomatoes delicious, but they're so good for you. And so many varieties to grow and taste. I love the little cherries, especially the "chocolate" ones. Your photo, Daniel, makes my mouth water!

Daniel, those are beauties! Wonderful crop. You deserve to be very proud.

Joan, that structure adjacent to the sunflowers (see photo) has no name. I cobbled it up with spare wood and metal (roof). It's my "reflection spot", overlooking my garden. Maybe I should call it my smoke house, now that I bought some pipe tobacco yesterday. I haven't smoked for I don't know how long--20 years? But the urge hit me. I figured every once in awhile, at my age, it shouldn't really harm me. Hmmm.

Joan, the Rose of Sharon picture is from Daniel's blog.  

After you asked that question, I realized I should have said that, and maybe got Daniel's permission to post it here.

I also love the color and pattern.

Chris, your "sauerkraut is good with blue cheese and mushrooms" sound delicious. I like each one of those flavors; I have never tried them together.

Randy, having the space to allow a huge clump of sunflowers is a real asset. Yours is so pretty and the room beside it must be a wonderful place to sit. Is it a porch? or a gazebo type structure? I am guessing they are at least 10 feet high or more.
