Last month as the weather was cooling down and fall was slowly settling in Atlanta, I wondered how long would my bell pepper, tomato and watermelon plants continue to bloom.
The answer is always-Frost. Frost will surely kill plants, my test/question was when will the frost get here?
Atlanta weather is very inconsistent when it comes to fall, winter and sometimes spring weather. Prime example, Wednesday morning it was 27 degrees and windy with a wind chill factor of 18. Yes, 18 degrees. Now get this...the temperature is expected to be in the low 70's by the weekend.
So, my wondering is over...frost came to Atlanta this week--now back to my seed catalogs.

Rainy days also make me feel so sleepy, my body just wants to rest and relax. So, I'm not going to fight the feeling and I'm going to chill.

I want to show more pictures of my time in the garden last weekend.
This is the area where I’ve decided to grow my garlic along with tulips--I want to
purchase tulips in the next two weeks to be able to plant the tulip bulbs in December.

color to the yard, however, my husband didn’t care for them, and thought it was a bit
much,and not to mention some of them didn’t bloom very well.
that time I couldn’t focus on yard work---I had to focus on finding work and helping my
family out--well, that’s another story, but it does play a big role in me not being able to
focus on gardening, too.
and a bit of garlic--I know….what a weird combination---I wanted to make it a majority tulip area,
but I have limited space to garden since we moved into the new house, and I just didn’t feel
complete as a gardener, last year-after harvesting garlic for eight straight years.

sprouted. Really wish I could make the distinction between all of the seedlings because
I would like to grow some to sell, too.
