Garden Update: October 2014

Eggplants and tomatoes in the garden at the end of October. I'm as surprised as you are, considering we've already had a couple of frosty days. I'm guessing the forecasted snow tomorrow night will kill these off, but I'm gonna enjoy them while they last.

Other things we have growing in our garden? We have the usual fall selection of carrots, beets (that are not doing that well), collards, cabbage, broccoli, baby bok choy, and peas.

And this month, because it's been feeling warmer, sunnier, and drier than last month, I got brave and started a round of turnips, radishes, and lettuce.

 The strawberry plants have been fruiting,

and the blueberry bushes are starting to turn this gorgeous hue.

We've brought all the citrus plants, the lemon verbena, and the patchouli into the garage. It's always stressful for us to prep the plants for winter since we never know if they'll come back in the spring. But it's a chance we take and we keep our fingers crossed until the earth starts warming up again.
