After record-breaking heat this week, we are expecting a frost Friday night, so I am busy bringing everything in.
Some of the Bull Nose pepper plants are so loaded with fruit, they have fallen over!
Ajvarski peppers...these are the BEST!
And lots of pumpkins!
But vegetables aren't the only thing I've been gathering. I've been saving seeds from my flowers all summer long, both for my own use, and to offer to other gardeners locally, and through my website.
Evening Dame's Rocket...
Balsam...these seeds are so much fun to save! When the pods are ripe they will burst open when gently squeezed, so you have to be careful or they will go everywhere!
My box of seeds...this was taken a few weeks ago, so there are a lot more now. In fact, I may need a bigger box!

And while I'm talking about seeds, I wanted to share these pictures from Monticello. I forgot to include it in my post about my visit there!
That's all for the moment, but I will be taking more pictures before my garden gets hit by the frost!
I am a passionate gardener and seed-saver, who also enjoys playing the violin and accordion, running, spending time with my 4 golden retrievers, keeping chickens, photography, and reading. I also blog for Heirloom Gardener.
