August in the Garden: A Photo Entry

August is a bountiful month at a garden in Maine.  The harvests start coming in and all of that hard work tilling, weeding, and watering is paid off.  We have been eating royally for the past several weeks and my main thoughts are of bigger and better for next year.  Here are some pictures to up date you on the goings on here in Day’s Ferry.
