While I was drinking my coffee Friday morning, contemplating the day’s gardening chores, something caught my eye outside my window. My first thought was, “No…it can’t be.” I put down my coffee and walked onto my patio – in pajamas and all. And I’ll be darned if it wasn’t what I thought! Chickens in my neighbor’s yard! More!
I am loving this cooler, autumn weather! The temperatures are in the upper 70s, lower 80s with much lower humidity. It’s actually nice to be in the garden. I finally planted my cover crop (red clover), five types of radishes, watercress (in a pot), and some more golden globe turnips. I planted a few more kale seeds, too. I also trimmed my cucumber vines in an attempt to help them survive against the onslaught of pickle worms. I’m not sure if we’re past the worst of it, but I’m hoping. My mums are in bloom (see picture above) and there are good things happening in my garden. This week’s garden pictures!
