Fall Garden Today
Okay, I will have a "real post" up later this evening or at the latest in the a.m. but for now this will have to do to prove I am still alive and well! I have, however, been reading all of your posts daily and look forward to my 15 minutes with coffee and blogger friends before my kids wake up every morning!
Here is a fall pictorial tour of our little suburban farm taken this afternoon:
Lettuce Beds (several types of mesclun, lettuces, spinach, oriental greens, Swiss Chard)
Garlic, Shallot & Onion Bed
I actually got ambitious this day and interplanted pansies to give a little color and separate the types. I hope the pansies fill out soon and look a little better!
Leek Bed with Swiss Chard and pansies
The Marigolds are looking fantastic right now, I need to remember to plant these everywhere next year - I like them better than mums!
Are cosmos supposed to get this big? LOL they don't seem to be giving up any time soon, either, and they are in the shade for half the day. I shudder to think of all the reseeding that went on over the summer & fall... can you say INVASIVE?! I will find out next summer!
That's all for now. I even already loaded up pics for my next post, but since it is a "real post" I will have to find time later this evening to sit down after the kids go to bed and actually write some words to go along with the pics. Right now, however, I have two boys wound up after a day at school screaming about being "starving" and wanting to go ride bikes. It's hard to get used to it getting dark so early and having to get so much done right after school. The upside is that they go to bed earlier!!
