Crouching Gardener, Hidden Broccoli

August 27

A bit of rain this morning, and a nice warm overcast day. A storm rolled in after sundown and it's been pouring for at least an hour now, giving everything a much-needed soak.

It's harvest time, and the garden knows no rest. Peas, beans, tomatoes, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages, herbs, zucchini... There are signs of fall, also: the oats have turned from green to brown, and the hops are close to ripe. Brussells sprouts are still going strong, though:

Dotted mint (Monarda punctata) in bloom. Amazing.
