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. 

Comment by Daniel W on August 21, 2014 at 9:25pm

The tomatoes are Cherokee Purple, SuperSweet 1000, Sungold, Lemon Boy, and one I forget. I had a Better Boy earlier. It did not survive to be photographed. Possibly my best crop ever.



This okra is "Burgundy", an open-pollinated heirloom. I'm getting a few pods a day from about 10 plants. I love growing these kitchen crops.

Spud and Joan, That rose of sharon is a seedling that grew volunteer from a pink one. I am always planting volunteer shrubs and trees to see what happens.

Plinius that does sound good, sauerkraut with blue cheese and mushrooms. I also like it on rye bread with swiss cheese, onions, and thousand island dressing, grilled.

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. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 18, 2014 at 11:50pm

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. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 18, 2014 at 11:47pm

Spud, your photo of Rose of Sharon is so pretty. Is that a plant in your garden, or in Daniel's? I will have to look into that plant to see if it will fit in my jungle. I love the color and pattern.

Yes, when I first saw the blossoms, they looked like the Washington Hawthorn blossoms of my tree. I planted mine after a trip to Ireland where Washington Hawthorns were grown as hedgerows, forming beautiful and fragrant separation of roads from fields and between fields. They are fragile trees, break easily in a wind storm and that is how mine died. Not to worry though, there are lots of sprouts running in all directions to restore your broken tree if it happens to yours. It is a lovely tree and I am glad you have one, even if it is considered a weed. Bee songs emanate from it in a lovely, constant hum.
