We got Cherokee Purples!

The first cherokee purples

Up here in northern Italy we're going through a rather long period of sunny days and a dry spell with no end-of-summer storms in sight. The cucumbers are still producing, and there's still a lot of green tomatoes on the vines, but I am gradually clearing out the garden as summer gives way to fall. The weather didn't start out so well in June, but at the way things are looking, we could be wearing t-shirts and shorts up into October. And then it's hello Hawaii in November!

Today's high: 30°C / 86°F


  1. I'm glad your garden is producing & that you'll be going to Hawaii!

    1. Yessss...and to bring back some garden seeds like wing beans and bittermelon!
