Photos from a Rainy Sunday

It rained and rained and rained yesterday and in between heavy downpours, I snuck up into the garden to shoot some photos.. here are some of them!

I don't know what this lime green insect dude is on the bright orange calendula, but the colour contrast is gorgeous!

The purple kohlrabi are read for harvest! The swollen stems are about 3-inches in diameter and perfect for salads, stir-fries or snacking!

This garden shot shows some of the tomatoes and peas.. this is about 1/8th of the garden total.. we're just under 2000 square feet.. but there is never enough room!

Thanks to the rain, the pole beans have reached the top of the A-frame trellis.. in fact, they're about a foot taller than the trellis now! I've been measuring and some of them grow 4 or more inches a day!

Finally, the basil.. ahhhhh, the basil.. spectacular, fragrant, delicious.. what can I say about basil that hasn't been said before..

Happy Gardening!
