Seeing a lot of growth with this broccoli cluster in my front yard. With the cooler temps and the rain, these brassica vegetables are blossoming very well.

A Little Clean-up

Last Thursday, I decided to clean up my driveway area, growing /planting area...
it felt good to clean up the area a bit and to plant some more lettuce and broccoli into the garden.

A Little Piece of Summer

Woke up this morning to some pretty cool weather---temps in the 40's and I welcome it, but I was still a bit concerned about a few plants outside, but they're still hanging in there. 

The tomatoes are still holding on, albeit with a lean, but they're still here! 

The bell peppers were doing awesome, too!

Neither of tomatoes or peppers were plants that I planned to grow in the garden this year, but conditions in the compost pile said otherwise..
and here we are with peppers and a tomato plant. Sure hope I can harvest at least a handful of tomatoes before it gets too cold.

Up early this morning washing my son's chef jacket and to my surprise it's still raining outside----yes! Rain has been pretty sparse in my area for awhile....all I have to say is....soak it up!

Fall is in the Air

Well someone finally made their presence known and I soaked up every gentle breeze that was sent by you, yesterday---Fall. Actually the whole weekend was nice, but Sunday was the only day I spent outside, and it was so wonderful, I decided to transplant more broccoli into the garden. All in all I transplanted 8 plants, to my surprise I had a total of 14 plants growing in this silver pan. 
Yes, yesterday was a nice gardening day, how was your day or weekend, and has fall shown up in your area, yet?

October is Here

Felt bad that I didn't post anything last week, even though, I took pictures around the garden, I really didn't feel like posting and I just wanted to spend time in my garden without worrying about posting and uploading stories and pictures. 

Now that October is here, I'm ready to get back in the flow of things in the blogging world. This doesn't mean I'm participating in Blogtober or anything--- couldn't see myself writing a blog post everyday this month, if you can do it, more power to you---you're awesome!

So yeah, I'm back, y'all....let's get growing!
