The adventuresome life of a Great Pyrenees/Newfoundland dog in Northwestern Ontario

Jeudi dans le jardin

(We thought we’d make the title a bit easier for our French fans to read this week. Bonjour, Easy! ~:o)= Actually, we were having difficulty finding an alliterative day for Garden in English… BOL)

We haven’t taken you on a walk in the garden for a while. Now is a good time to see what’s going on there so, I asked Elizabeth to take some photos for you. She’s been working hard all summer, and I think it smells delicious!

Elizabeth's second crop of beets is coming up.

This bee and its friends have been hard at work in the garden, too.  They seem to have the most success with the Purple Tomatillos where they turn these blossoms...

into a magical looking forest of baby tomatillos like these! We have hundreds coming along. Elizabeth will make most of them into batches of Mango Chutney.

Elizabeth likes to give her garden vegetables companions so they have fun while they grow up and never get lonely. I think it's a shame she doesn't feel the same way about her dog [Scribal note: She does, actually. But others in the family do not!] Here the carrots are thriving with their friends the tomatoes.

Her favourite herb, French Tarragon. Good thing; she has a lot of it this year!

The Swiss Chard that came up is doing well, but there isn't very much.

These flowers are very pretty. We don't eat their fruit, though. These are Russian Blue Potato flowers. Elizabeth is glad they've started blooming now. Hilling them is a lot of work.

Next week we’ll do another garden!

  1. I love french tarragon too (ok we live in France lol). It never grew in our garden but to add it fresh to a grilled fish is the best :O)

  2. My bipeds eat a lot of French Tarragon – our plant never gets as big as yours because they eat it as fast as it grows!

  3. Loving the French title! Whee felt proud to be able to understand it! Oh and what beautiful plants!
