Sunflowers

A majority of our Sunflowers were eaten by deer or rabbits. But some have managed to survive. They’re a beauty to behold at the end of summer.

Tomatoes

The most anticipated harvest has got to be our tomatoes.  Since December, Matt and I have been scheming and deciding what types of tomatoes we should grow here at 328North.  Because of our impatience and indecisiveness, we settled on a little over a dozen varieties.  Some we started from seed, others we bought from local farmers and nurseries as small pint size seedlings.

For the past few weeks we’ve been enjoying nothing but fresh tomatoes from our own garden and bypassing every produce stand we come across.  Nothing beats a warm tomato picked right off the vine and into your mouth.  Once you have had homegrown tomatoes, store bought never can compare to the sweetness a real tomato provides.

Beans

It’s almost mid-August and we’re still harvesting beans in our garden at least every other day.  We planted both bush and pole beans, six varieties in total.  Pole beans seems to be a waste of space in the garden and the yield has been mediocre at best.
