A Morning Walk in the Fall Garden

Dew on the edge of a cucumber plant. Look at the beautiful curl.

I love to walk in the garden in the morning. There is no diamond necklace as beautiful as the dew drops on the edge of a leaf. Take a walk with me and enjoy.

Broccoli is well on its way

Carrots loving this pot

Only the rich soil of a square foot garden could support this amount of plants so close

Your gardening is inspiring! I have been buying more and more at our local farmer's market. I ate swiss chard and bok choy for the first time last week... this saturday, I bought some kind of young pea stouts, mixed greens sprouts and kale... I am really stretching but loving it. Oh, I also bought radish with all the greens on top... I am trying to put just about anything in my salads... hee her.

Maybe next year I can get into the gardening. I have tried so many times, but it seems I can never keep up with them... they end up drying out and dying.

you are more adventurous in your eating than I am Lindy! I would highly suggest you check out the NEW Square Foot Gardening book at your local library. I am very pleased with the difference it has made. No weeds, organic and the mixture contains humus and vermiculite which holds the moisture. So far, I am very pleased with the results. I can't wait until spring to build more boxes!
