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.
