Squash, squash blossoms, runner bean tepees, kale babies – our Seattle garden is prolific right now. Everywhere you look, there’s a festival of color. Here’s some of what’s growing so happily right now.
So cool to see the flower turn into the vegetable.
The lifecycle of a squash, in one shot.
Look at that color! We love it, and so do the bees and hummingbirds!
What’s that, in the understory below the runner beans? It’s the kale babies!
The carrots need some thinning. We ate a few sweet thin baby carrots, harvested in the name of making room for the rest of them.
Coming soon: Some pictures of the young kabocha squash, growing up quickly.
