Fall Garden

Since it’s my husband’s birthday, this will be short on words but long on photos. My garden isn’t as crazy as it was a few months ago, but it’s still flourishing. A quick fifteen minutes outside with my camera revealed the shift into the new season. Whoever said it doesn’t look like fall in California?

So nice to see a fall garden in California. I guess plants know the seasons, cuz it has been hot in Cali. We have had small freezes, so picking everything, but still tomatoes with tops frozen. But picked everything today, sposed to be 27 tonight. Moving plants into basement. Last swiss chard, did you do a piece on Swiss chard,? awesome. doesn’t go to seed like spinach and good to freeze. Ok, thanks. Helen

Helen,

Twenty seven degrees is way too cold for me, but I’m happy to hear that you and your plants are adjusting to the temperature change. Glad to know you like Swiss chard as much as I do.

Cheers!

Gorgeous. I think those Pineapple thingies look kinda cool. BTW your aprons are the prettiest I have ever seen!!

Leslie,

Thank you very much! The pineapple guavas are delicious and I like to make sorbet with them– if you see any at your local farmers market, you should try them.

Cheers!
Val
