Fall in the Garden...November

Fall in the Garden...November

I got home from work an hour early today (exciting because the sun was still out!) and decided to take a quick photo walk around the yard. I love fall in California! Still have flowers blooming, pansies and AlstrIMG_4551oemeria and roses…





The lilacs are turning color, adding a nice touch of yellow…IMG_4560

While the maidenhair fern is still fresh and green (till the first frost!)…IMG_4550

The onion seeds have sprouted and are growing!IMG_4544

And the radishes and garlic are jumping out of the ground!IMG_4542 IMG_4543

The Big Boy tomatoes are still setting blossoms and the green fruit looks so promising we’re ready to drape some sheet plastic over them before it’s cold enough to do damage…maybe we’ll have a few tomatoes for Thanksgiving dinner!IMG_4545 IMG_4546

The lettuce is still providing nice salads and the beets are growing along toward spring harvest!IMG_4561 IMG_4563

IMG_4554The “girls” seem happy enough in the cool weather (47 at night but 80 in the day…what!!!) but still only one laying an egg a day with a missed day here and there…What’s growing in your garden? Any tips to share about fall/winter gardening? Share with us…pleeeeezzz!

Happy Fall!IMG_4569

Hope you enjoy kicking your way through the leaves as much as I do!IMG_4570
