Brrr good morning!

Hi all, haven't posted recently, been too busy to even remember! However, wanted to say the Kale is growing strong.... and onion and garlic for next year are going strong! Collards are up, wish they'd grow a little faster.... It's kinda cool this morning, brisk, had a little ice on the birdbath, but not enough to stop the birds if they want a drink! Been out gathering more moonflower seed.... got plenty if you need to order some from the store for stocking stuffers! :)  Plenty of lavender ones, too.... Hope everyone has a great day!   deb

Fall is in the air?

Hi everyone! Haven't written in a while - been pretty busy what with vacations, grandkids and such....not to mention the garden!  Speaking of garden, I have baby collards, broccoli, spaghetti squash, spinich, cabbage and kale.... ! There is no time to rest yet; we still have food to grow!  Seed us coming in hot and heavy, the hyacinth bean and lavender moonflower are especially abundent this year. Also morning glories of unbelievably rich colors this year, and white cyprus vine and marigold.  My marigolds look like BUSHES, not plants, this year....turns out i planted them over the septic tank! ha! So that old rumour is true......! you can see some of my pics from my garden and produce on my facebook page, if you are interested. Look up and "like" debbie's garden in Dallas, Georgia. http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pages/debbies-garden/70108898736  Everyone have a great day!  debbie

 
 

Greens!

Yesterday I picked my first collards of the season and they were delish!  I had some Kale to eat up, too, so I cooked them together.  The arugula is really starting to shoot up, too, and I can't wait to have some in a salad, hopefully next week.  Growing your own food can't be beat ! Saw some swiss chard make an appearance, and spinich and lettuce too.....grow babies grow, cause you don't have long in Georgia before you will want to bolt! I am going to try using row covers to help keep them shaded as long as possible and "drag out" the season....wish me luck! Anyone got any tips on this, let me know by commenting or emailing me!  deb
