From your host this week, Michelle from SimplifyLiveLove,

zinnias from SimplifyLiveLove.com

Happy September 1! I love this time of year when marigolds and zinnias are in full bloom in my garden. We’ve had a surprisingly nice last week of August. The weather has been cool during the day and even cooler at night. It’s certainly not typical for this time of year in Eastern Iowa, but I love it. I’ve had to wear sweatshirts a few times this past week! My tomatoes, on the other hand, would really like a few hot days! It looks like we will get them this week, though, and I’m definitely not complaining about the nice weather we’ve had this summer. What a weird year for us!
Dills Giant Pumpkin and Jacob Cattle Beans from SimplifyLiveLove.com

In my garden this week, I harvested dried Jacob’s Cattle Beans, dug more potatoes for storing over winter, and am excitedly watching my pumpkins grow. I’ve got several beautiful white Caspar Pumpkins {thanks to Jami for growing them last year!} and four huge Dills Atlantic Giants growing. I’ve never grown such big pumpkins so I’m really excited about them. They’re not as big as the pictures on their websites, but they’re still pretty darn awesome. My garden is winding down and I’m about ready for it to be done.
