If you've read my blog for a while,
then you will know how I love signs!
I couldn't help but think that my newly planted garlic patch needed a sign.
And so I got to work creating one.
Besides looking cute in the garden,
this sign will serve as a reminder next spring to not plant anything in that
particular raised bed.
(Goodness knows, without the sign I just might forget!)
Temperate weather has helped extend our garden season this year.
Incredibly, we are still harvesting cucumbers, tomatoes,
The purple sweet potatoes lie beneath the ground ready for harvest,
but still are producing delicate purple blossoms.
This chard has been growing since May...
providing yummy greens for 6 months of dinners!
Fall lettuce has made for tasty salads of late.
Beets for roasting...
not to mention carrots and broccoli.
There are 12 new cabbage plants growing that will hopefully reach maturity
so that we can make another batch of sauerkraut this winter.
Inside the greenhouse I noticed this plant growing out of the stones...
and nestled in it's foliage... a pattypan squash!
I hope to keep this plant growing in the months to come!
Another surprise found amongst the zinnias...
a guinea egg, forgotten by it's mother...
no hope for development (guineas are lousy parents).
While at the garden, I check on Rosalie and her new pal.
We moved Ivanka, the Transylvanian naked neck chicken, to the barn
so that Rosalie would have a friend.
These two have hit it off well, and spend their days gossiping over tea and crumpets.
