The excitement of picking a pumpkin off a vine from a plant you grew from a seed is incredible, and if I feel excited, the little ones in my life are ecstatic. Each day we are combing through our rapidly browning gardens for the little treasures: gourds, pumpkins, squash, tomatoes, cabbage, and almost brussel sprouts, and then sticking the more autumnal of these treasures around our home. Our house is quickly taking on an autumnal feel.
With just a short time until our first frost, we are enjoying the garden while we can, browns and greens and all. I think one of the garden beds is ready to be cleared to get the fall garlic in, and after a little time away from the gardens, I'm looking forward to getting my hands dirty again. This will be our first year growing garlic and I am hoping I'm getting the right amount in the ground.
What's coming out of your garden theses days?
