Early Autumn Garden

 Flag flown in remembrance of September 11th

Sugar Snap Peas, the best winter treat.

Dahlias and Coleus bringing cheer to the front porch.

I've also got broccoli, cabbage, radish, mixed baby greens, carrots, and spring onions getting a good start.  Late summer planting is so much easier.  The autumn here brings regular rainfall but still plenty of warmth to encourage quick growth (which means beating the frost in December).  Hands off is just what I need right now.
