I’ve actually got two green chile plants growing in the garden bed. I’m thinking I need to harvest the green chile pods this weekend and roast them on the BBQ grill for storage in the freezer for the winter.
Another sign of the approach of fall is that the State Fair has returned to town, and the night temperatures are getting down into the 50-60 F range. It still gets into the 80-95 F range during the day, which makes for some interesting effects on the exteriors of the houses and the outside equipment that go through a 40 degree temperature change in 24 hours.
We’ve also got a few more sunflowers coming into bloom just now, which brings its own sort of bittersweet joy, because I know this will be the last round of blossoms for the year in the garden. Winter is coming and the nights are getting cold. But the sunflowers blooming are a gorgeous burgundy color. Here’s a picture of one of them.
I hope you all have a pleasant September.
