Finally, temperatures under 90 degrees. I shut off my AC and opened some windows. Last week, Corvette decided to harvest. I guess that is ok, except he picked a perfectly good bell pepper that I was hoping would get bigger. He sheepishly walked up to me with said bell pepper and MORE cucumbers. I am looking into pickling them. And pickling Corvette for picking my pepper before it was full grown. Grrrrr.
Anyway, here is the harvest this week.
Peppers before picking.
Like the red.
More peppers to add to Corvette’s collection. Yippee.
This may someday be an artichoke. I am hopeful, but not convinced.
Holy Cow! I think this is a zucchini growing on my bean fence. Where are the beans? Oh yea, evil sun.
Corn is looking good.
Hah, evil sun!
A red dragonfly on the corn
And Miss Lucie Lu, my big red dog. She chose to lay on my thongs. Lazy girl enjoying the cooler weather.

Well, the only thing surviving in my garden right now is peppers. Trust me, they are not peppers that I like so much. I have no desire to burn my mouth off. But, they are pretty to look at.
I can not eat them, but I can enjoy the colors.
Just look at that Bell Pepper. Back at you evil Sun!
Love that corn baby!
I saw a grasshopper sitting on the wall of my house. I ran to get my camera to try and snap a photo of it, but my big, red dog Lucie had other ideas. Like eating it. Damn Dog.
After that, she took some time to pull a sticker out of her foot.
Then she sheepishly looked at me for ruining my grasshopper shot. Lay down Luce.

I did not get many great shots this week. So I will just share what I did get. I might add that I can feel the slight change in seasons. For what it is worth, there is not much of a change here in the Desert Southwest. Still, the wind is different and I know that the scorching weather is behind us. Hopefully, my garden will yield more than a cucumber or two.
I have plenty of zucchini flowers. Only found a couple though.
This is my artichoke that was smothered by the cucumber plants. I just found out that like my asparagus, the artichoke will not bear for a couple of years. Great.
The second attempt at corn is going well.
Sunflowers continue to bloom.
Ohh, I have Bell Peppers!
In case you are wondering about Lucie my big, red dog, she spent her time trying to find a tarantula living under this ice plant.
Hey, I think she has some pointer in her.
