This week in the garden
by Rainbow Bobbins
Above are the very last of the tomatoes. The tomato plants were pulled out, the soil was turned and garlic bulbs were planted (Spanish Rojo & Inchelium Red). The gourds were harvested and the last of the herbs were picked to dry and store. There are a few flowers still surviving in the yard. I collected enough dahlias, roses and hydrangeas to put together a nice fall bouquet. There is still some clean up to do in the yard to prepare it for winter. Over the winter I will be planning for next season’s yard projects, reading seed catalogs in the bathtub and putting a “garden year in review” post together. I will miss my yard for the cold months but look forward to a winter of good books, good movies and soup. Lots of soup.
