How Does Your Garden Grow

 Already the air feels cooler in the mornings, and the leaves, vegetables and plants are starting to take on their fall appearance of wild abundance.  Besides the multitude of tomatillas coming in everyday, most of our harvest this year is giving us just more than we can eat.  With our move in just over a week, we are happy the keep this amount of feed coming in, although leaving behind a garden of green tomatoes will be slightly painful. 

It doesn't help that a little scavenger (my almost 2 year old) keeps eating all the cucumbers and peppers before I can get them into the house.  I suppose in the grand scheme of things it doesn't get much better than eating vegetables out of the garden.

Unfortunately all my photos are from my phone this week (and I definitely need a lesson on phone photography).

Check out some of these great photos of other people's gardens from this week and share some of your own in the gardening flickr group.

What's growing in your garden this week?

Each Friday I share photos from our garden with an update about what we're doing, what's growing, and what we're eating.  I invite you to come play along, I love seeing what others are trying.  You can join the fun in 3 ways:
  • If you blog, I welcome you to write a post or share a post from that week about what's growing in your garden
  • If you aren't a blogger, I invite you to join my gardening flickr group and share photos of your garden from this week - I will try to grab a few photos each week to share on my post.  Please include the date, a general location and your name so I can give you the proper credit.
  • And last - if you don't want to blog or share photos, just follow along and check out all the links and photos and maybe share a comment with your own gardening experience from the week

  2. Love that peacock art in the first picture! Our garden is slowing down. Tomatoes are pretty pathetic looking at this point- too much rain early on ended up being a bad thing.
