Show and Tell Friday


Can I show you my fall garden? Come out back... My cabbage got huge and then I cut off some of the bottom leaves for cabbage rolls. It came back nicely. Everything else is doing well. I even cut some of my apple mint and dried it to make tea. I figure that might make a nice gift in my Christmas baskets to friends. I adore these green miniature roses. The funny thing is that as a teenager I swore I would never have a garden. Being the chief weed puller puts a damper on future visions of gardens. This one is manageable.

Looks like Peter Rabbit would love your garden, so nice and neat.

WOW - you still have stuff growing in your garden? Amazing!!! I love the cabbages -they actually look ornamental.

Your garden looks so beautiful, especially to someone who lives in Minnesota where the gardening season is pretty much over for the year.

I had to laugh when I read that as a teenager, you said you'd never have a garden. I said that when I was young, too. We had a huge garden when I was growing up, and it seemed like way too much work. Now, I love gardening and wish I had more than just a small city lot on which to garden.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Blessings,
Wanita

Dianne - I love Peter Rabbit! One day I'll show pictures of my collectibles. I even did my first son's nursery in Peter Rabbit. One of my favorite books of all time.

Ivory Spring - They are ornamental but edible and quite delicious! In Texas we have a second growing season.

Your garden is so pretty. I'd probably just kill everything if I tried it :)

Wow! Beautiful garden! We are expecting cold weather and snow showers here today in upper Mid=West, so luscious green leaves are a sight for sore eyes:)

Have to say "Wow" too! Looks perfect! I was just proud of myself for planting a pitiful pot of chives, a few radishes and lettuce this year. If I spend time staring at your pictures will your green thumb rub off on me?

Your Fall garden looks wonderful. I killed my garden this year, when I got hurt and forgot to ask the kids to water it while I was out of commission. Got a few things, but nothing pretty like this. I'm looking at bare garden beds now and thinking of what they will be in a few months. Yeah. I miss being able to check on the progress of my plants. It helps me keep sane. Thanks for posting the pics!
