Even though the mornings are starting off a wee bit cooler lately, our backyard garden is still chugging along like the Little Engine that Could.
The pink geraniums are hanging in there, and the ornamental cabbage and pansies are thriving.
Call me crazy but I think I’ll try growing cucumbers in the greenhouse this winter. I’m thinking about purchasing a small heater for the greenhouse. If anyone knows of a good one, please let me know.
I planted a few potatoes not so long ago and they are moving right along. Hopefully there will be some “new potatoes” there in a few weeks when we harvest them.
The chives got a much needed haircut.
The raised garden beds are beginning their transition from tomatoes to fall crops.
This raised garden bed has 2 different kinds of acorn squash growing in it. The leaves are starting to get a while powdery substance on them.
The Thanksgiving beets are finally recognizable.
And the broccoli, well let’s hope we are able to grow enough in time to enjoy them in a few stir fry dinners before the frost hits. I think we have 3 beds planted with broccoli now. Yee- Haw!
Rainbow Swiss Chard. You can’t kill it. Trust me, I’ve tried.
If you look closely you’ll notice most of the heirloom tomatoes are still green. I’ve been picking them as fast as I can at the first sign of color. I want to be able to harvest as many as possible before they stop growing.
And the zucchini. My dear, dear, zucchini. I think I’m going to see just how big I can get these suckers to grow. Who knows, maybe my next harvest will beat the last. I’m hoping for at least 100 more pounds of zucchini before the summers over.
Well that’s what’s happening in my garden, what’s going on at YOUR place?
Are you happy with how your garden turned out this year?
What are you going to do different next year?
