In the garden…
Our romaine lettuce has been delicious. We had lots of it ready at the same time, so we called on friends & neighbors to help us eat it last week!
Our peas have had a little trouble with the wooden trellis this year but with a little help are blooming & showing us the first of their pea pods. (Gardening Note: wire trellis is much easier for peas to climb).
The onions are half way through their growing cycle & the carrots should be ready just after Thanksgiving. We have tons of baby lettuce sprouts all over the garden, some to grow & some to share with a local community garden.
Around the garden…
We have failed at growing stevia & sage this season. Our tarragon & our oregano look beautiful but our container strawberries are getting eaten by some small animal (or some small child). 😉
We started some Christmas cactus for family & friends a few months ago. The cacti are doing lovely & even blooming a bit early this year.
For the first time, we also attempted to keep our poinsettia from last year. We have kept it alive all year & now have repotted it, fertilized it & are looking forward to seeing it turn red (fingers crossed).
Online in the garden…
We have updated all our local gardening pages. Check them out & see what our local gardeners are doing in their gardens! I will update more in the next month I promise! Happy Gardening!
