The weather has been pretty wonky here all week. One minute it’s raining and the wind is blowing like crazy, and the next it’s sunny and cheerful. Luckily I can sneak outside and work on my garden clean up projects in small bursts throughout the day.
The section just outside the dining room is officially cleared off. The tomatoes I was growing in containers have placed onto the compost heap, Lemon the Lemon tree has been moved to the front porch and the empty pots have been moved to the garage.
It’s slim pickings when it comes to tomatoes lately. I’ve pulled all but 6 remaining tomatoes plants I have in the galvanized stock tanks alongside the house. And I’m going to keep them there until the temps hover around the low 40’s.
Buttercup squash make the best pies!
And so it begins…
Can you name that shroom? It sure it pretty.
The HH installed 2 totally unapproved cedar posts yesterday for my new raspberry trellis. 😉 Luckily they are below the fence line so the snoopervisors shouldn’t notice. Unless they are reading the blog. Bahahhaa! Really, like I care. And in case you are wondering what I’ll be wearing for Halloween this year… I’ll be wearing this.
And check out those beets!!! This was my first time growing cylindrical beets. And it will be my last. I think I’ll stick to my Detroit Dark Reds. Maybe I’m weird, but I think beets should be round. Although I do think the cylindrical beets are easier to peel.
What’s happening in YOUR garden?
Do you still have tomato plants lingering?
