Fall Landscapes...Enjoy !


Today I planted kohlrabi and mustard, both are fall crops in the middle south.

We still have tomatoes and bush beans producing a harvest about twice a week.  Okra has just begun to produce...yum !

Chives, basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and sage are still in abundance.

Leaves are falling and so the compost bin is full and happily doing its job.

If you are ready to start a compost pile for the overwintering...use all you discarded veggies from the garden, eggshells ( rinse well ) coffee/tea grinds, and any grass clippings and leaves that haven't been sprayed with pesticides, etc. Keep damp but not soaked...add some earthworms/composting worms and cover with a large tarp...check about once a week-turning about every 2 spring time you should have a nice pile of beautiful composted soil. Spread this sparingly in your garden beds and no other fertilizing will be needed.

Happy fall, enjoy the changing landscapes...wherever you are.
