The shadows are long and the days are much shorter in the autumn garden.
All the summer produce is long gone once the nights turn cold. Our nights have been in the low 40's but we haven't hit the 30's yet so things are still relatively green and still making an effort to grow. we even still have leaves on most of the trees which should have dropped by now.
The cabbage that I planted the first of October from seedlings is doing really well. I've never tried to grow cabbage before so this makes me truly happy. On the right in this picture you can see rhubarb leaves still green and growing! Time for that to go to sleep already.
It's still possible to enjoy a good book while relaxing in the garden whatever the season.
Until next time,
