Mavis Butterfield’s October Garden Tour
Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard, and all she found was KALE.
I am beginning to rethink the whole “Was it a good idea to plant Brussels sprouts ” idea. I mean really, the plants are a total garden hog, and the Brussels Sprouts are taking forever to grow. At this rate, we may be eating them on New Years Day for Pete’s sake!
The fall broccoli is looking pretty fierce.
And the rainbow Swiss chard… Ya, it’s still there. It’s so freaking perky I’m beginning to think it’s taunting me. I secretly want to step on it, but I know it will just come back to life and haunt me in my sleep.
Kale. Double Gag. If I don’t end up committed by the end of the year it will be a freakin’ miracle.
Red cabbage. Whoppieeeeeeeeeeee!
Ahh, okay, so here’s something I like. Rosemary.
Now I have a question. Will my Rosemary plant stay green all winter, or should I go ahead and snip off all the leaves now and dry them out? Who’s a rosemary expert? I need your help.
