August Gardens & Harvests – Greens starting to seed

harvests beginning to roll in!
nothing like a big old bag of basil! mmmm
mustard greens going to seed. i love the contrast between the dark purple leaves & the bright yellow flowers they produce when starting the seed production process
red romaine starting to bolt
cucumber plants covered in flowers  
drunken frizzy headed woman lettuce putting out its lovely flowers which will turn to seed for next season
another pic of the lettuce forming seeds
beans galore. it’s hard to leave some of them alone so that they can produce seeds. I planted lots this year so that I would have some to eat, and some for seed. These are Provider Green Beans 
Purple beans starting to produce. They are so beautiful in flower & fruit
planted lots of marigolds this year, i am found of this extra puffy variety
tomatoes are finally starting to ripen. First of the vine? Purple Cherokee
late blooming lupin!
lots of squash blossoms with fruits to follow
beans & cucs and first min pepper of the season
dill starting to produce seed. I have been picking some for pickling, but lots of seed still coming on
arugula has bolted & is now starting to flower, next step, seed production!
sunset lettuce has bolted too. i am very excited to have all these new lettuce varieties in my collection
Despite the cool temperatures, this has been a great summer for peppers so far. Still waiting for them to ripen, but the plants are loaded with fruit  
not a lot of tomaotes yet, but tonnes of beans & cucumbers
