We’re back to having a colorful blog, and we’ve got some great pictures to show off!
The butterfly caterpillars have once again eaten the green fennel down to nubbins, and they have begrudgingly moved on to the bronze fennel. For whatever reason, they don’t seem to like the bronze fennel quite as well.
The ‘Sunbelt’ Grapes are beautifully purple/blue and quite tasty. Unfortunately, the grape berry moth larvae think so too!
This Sweet Annie has turned into a huge shrub! This is an herb that I’m not very familiar with, probably because it’s not really a culinary herb, but more of a fragrance herb. Apparently it is supposed to be good for drying and using in herbal wreaths and other such crafty things.
Although we like to keep the basil flowers trimmed back to keep the culinary quality of the basil high, I really love basil flowers! They are really beautiful, the bees like them, and they are just as edible as the leaves.
Now that’s what I like to see in a tomato! This is one of the Rose tomatoes all sliced up and ready for sandwiches. I haven’t been able to get a really good flavor comparison of the Rose and Brandywine tomatoes, but I think Rose wins the productivity and earliness awards.
Have a great Labor Day Weekend!

Gorgeous photos. I had that same caterpiller and had no idea what it was, thanks for letting me know.
