It really feels like fall out in the garden. I can’t say that I love it, I’m a summer person, but it is beautiful here and the Holidays are right around the corner, then the snow, and then spring will be here.. sorry.. I’m getting off track :).
Okay, out to the garden! Here’s our white pine tree undergoing it’s annual fall browning. It may look a bit sad but this is just part of it’s fall process. You can read more about the conifer life cycle here in this article by Margaret at A Way to Garden, one of my very favorite gardening blogs. The conifers will be just fine, they really will!
We still have a few hints of summer, like mesclun.
The tomatoes are hanging on. This tomato plant volunteered from last year and grew all over the asparagus bed.
There’s lots of green tomatoes. My neighbor and I were talking about what to do with them last night.
and zinnias and gladiolas.
I’m wondering if the gladiolas can winter over in the ground, or should I pull them and put them away for the winter?
Our trees are still quite green. we should be seeing some good fall color soon, I hope!
There’s so much clean up to do. We’ll get there, one bed at a time.
Happy fall! Enjoy everything!
