Playing in the Dirt: Part 6 End of Summer Goodness

So after everything got fried this summer, at Mom's we put out an umbrella and started watering more often, then the weather did us a favor and got nice and overcast here and there and even had some good days of rain!  Just before the rain I got out there and planted some carrots and beets, and a few weeks ago I planted some swiss chard, and artichokes, as well as a scatter garden and some nasturtiums in the front garden.  So here's a look at what is sprouting.  Since I took these I also got some swiss chard sprouting and carrots.

Some beets sprouting up as well as some birdseed plants (I planted the beets under the birdfeeder, so this should be interesting)
 Here's the first eggplant, already picked and the second one is almost the same size now.
 It's hard to see in this one, but this is my lone cucumber, slowly but surely.
 My 2 butternut squash are coming along great!
 Lovely kale, and new sprouts coming up next to it.
 Onions, green onions and Garlic in the foreground.
Very excited to see how these do, so far so good, excited about the fall crop.  The tomatoes also keep coming, but are winding down and the orange tree is gearing up.  Planted more at the boy's garden, but that's a whole other post.
