In my garden

I wish I was an all-weather-gardener. But I’m not. The rain we had last week made for another week of hardly being in the garden at all. I did pull out all the cauliflower and the broccoli (in the pouring rain, I might add), but that’s about it.

The plants don’t mind. It’s green all over the place.

Well, most of them don’t. I thought I could leave the carrots in for a while, but all the green is dying, so I guess I’ll have to harvest. This week we’ll eat mostly from the garden, I think. I like that.

The radish didn’t do so well. The rain washed away the soil and I don’t think the bulbs will form this way. Oh well, nice try.

My calendula is doing great, I will plant them out this week, but I doubt they will flower. It’s funny how in August, when we had such great weather, it seemed summer would never end. But now it really feels like fall and everything is slowing down.

I’m ready to start putting the garden to bed for the winter. It’s sad, but I’m also already making plans for next summer. That will give me something to look forward during the winter!


  1. fall is creeping in, isn't it.

    it was so cold here this morning. not quite frost weather, but i wore a scarf on my early-morning paper route!

    i think summer is on the way out.

    i am almost ready for winter . . .

    1. Yes, fall is coming... I can feel it too. But I'm not ready for winter yet. And I don't need to be either. There is a little adventure waiting for us in two weeks...
