|Zinnias with Frosting|
|Cosmos in frost|
I can't believe the garden is basically done for the season. It's been six months since I put the first seeds in the ground. I have had some wild successes (cherry tomatoes, ronde de nice squash, all the herbs I grew...) and some spectacular failures (spinach, onions & garlic, melons). I worked hard, and am proud of the garden. This afternoon I spent some time walking around the garden, taking notes about what worked and what didn't (and if not, why) already making plans for next season. I'm planning on growing in more traditional rows next year, with the hope that it'll make weeding easier. I will spend the next few months planning which varieties I will grow and ordering seeds, and starting seeds, and before you know it, I'll be back out in the garden!
I'm not planning on abandoning this blog over the winter. I've got lots of pictures to share, and plan on posting recipes and more.
