Luscher Farm Sketches

We sketched at Luscher Farm this week. The community garden provides 185 gardeners with plots to grow their own vegetables and flowers. This Saturday, the Grow Gather Dinner supports new sustainability projects for schools with local chefs preparing fresh produce from the gardens.
Lots of green tomatoes grow on vines but few are turning red. It may be mid-September before they ripen.

I discovered a patch of sweet peas growing under tall sunflowers and sat in the shade to sketch them enjoying their fragrance in the gentle breeze.
Scarecrows line the garden edges.
It's a wonderful spot to enjoy the fruits of summer.

Love the artichoke turned to flower that you sketched in the first photo, it always amazes me that we eat those prickly veges and they taste so good! Have a good week-end. Lorrie

Love your sketches of the flowers something about a casual ink drawing filled in with water color is so appealing to me. I make it sound easy and I very well know it’s not, you do wonderful work Paula.

Gee your place is awesome, we too had many tomatoes, but too many had endrot...guess they didn't get enough water. We did get more than enough to eat...and still have some but they are very small.. I love your little sketches too...am happy to be following your blog..Blessings
