a last few bits of summer

The fruit of the Kousa Dogwood.  I've heard you can eat them but I haven't dared try since the raw elderberry incident.  Oy vey.

Hops.

Just not enough sun this summer for a harvest...but I have mounds of these green tomatoes hopefully wrapped in newspaper.  If that doesn't work, grain-free fried green tomatoes.

Tilling this year's potato beds before putting in a cover crop.

The last of the summer herbs.

Two types of mint, thyme, and tarragon : drying by the pellet stove and making the living room smell wonderful.
