Labor Day Garden Report

Here are my stop light peppers - yellow, green and red.  They all start out green, and can be harvested before they change color.  Its been fun to watch them change. 
Last night we supped on our first batch of green beans.  There are plenty more where these came from, judging from the looks of these vines.
All that from three little pots!
Here I used a "Marinated Cherry Tomato Salad" recipe from  The dressing is vinegar and oil, with basil, oregano, parsley and a little bit of sugar.  DEEEE-lish!
We pulled up a few carrots to see how they are coming along. Wrote a note on the calendar to check them again in two weeks. Fortunately they can stay in the ground right up until the end of the growing season.
DS2 and I finished the last of the landscaping.

Whew - it only took all summer!  :)

Hi - The blue pellets do form a mulch to protect the grass seed. I used Ultra Lawn Patch. However, I think Scott's Lawn Patch is a much better product. Just couldn't find it this year.
