There is some hope, though!
Sunflower on Sunday (the bees didn't take a Sabbath rest, but I suppose their rest is coming much sooner than mine):
Our cucumber is producing enough now that we should have a steady harvest:
The garden as a whole. I have some pepper plants that probably will not have time to produce before the freeze. We purchased two of them, and they already had peppers growing. Those turned out very well. The plants I started from seeds, however, are just now working on their first blooms. I don't think there will be enough time. The cauliflower plants are HUGE. I am surprised by the thickness of the leaf and how big and sturdy they are. Today a cardinal landed on one, but flew away before I could get my camera. When I peek inside the plants I can see tiny heads of cauliflower growing. Maybe they will grow fast... I also have two smaller sunflower plants I grew from seeds planted directly in the soil in June. One of them will probably make it. The other is in the shade of the big sunflower and doesn't look like he's getting enough nutrients. The big sunflower that has already flowered was a volunteer growing from last year's seeds. :) I also have 3 flowers that came up...I can't remember what kind they are, but I remember that last year they took for.ev.er to actually make a flower. They are not even half as tall as they were last year when they finally flowered, so we'll see on those, too.
The tomatoes, as tomatoes do, are going crazy. Lots of tomatoes everywhere and my plants are quite wild and unruly. I fully expect those to ripen before we get a freeze.
In the meantime, the growing is the fun part, regardless of what we get out of it. And we are thankful for that.
