I'm starting to feel the fall pull to make soup, bake bread, and get my fingers going with the knitting needles and sewing projects. It feels good, and right, but there are still some glorious days to spend in the garden before the cold actually sets it. Despite already getting a light frost in some of the low spots in the garden, things are still coming in. Last week we got our sweet potato harvest in, and it was again on the low side, but on the flip side we'll be eating pumpkins every week until we can take any more pumpkin!
I have some big plans for the garden over the next few weeks involving some new paths and new edging for the garden beds. I'm hoping to take advantage of these beautiful fall days to get some heavy labor done and make next spring a little easier. We also plan to get some garlic in that we picked up at the Common Ground Fair over the weekend.
How's your garden growing?
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 2 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
- 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
