    Kitchen garden
    There’s an area for herbs, planted with some large seedling plants: - basil - lavender - cilantro - chives (divided from a plant I had in a container) - “pizza thyme” - mint - (empty space awaiting sage) When I get a chance, I will mulch these with sand. Then I have some seeds:...

    Rototilled

    Kitchen garden
    Chris dug out some big roots, and (surprise!) nine giant flagstones. We’re guessing they were once a flowerbed border, and got covered up. We’ll be re-using them to define the edge of the garden. We have an old rototiller in the shed. My dad came over with a can of gasoline and helped...

    Acorns & pecans Driving me Nuts

    Native Live Oak in lawn x1 Harvesting, Texas Live Oak along street x3 Harvesting, and Pecan Harvesting
    Way more acorns being dropped all over my front yard and driveway than I expected. So many that my car actually skids on the acorns due to lack of traction unless they are swept off the concrete! I’ve spent several hours sweeping acorns, and there are still several hundred acorns in my tre...

    Still no killing frost and there are plenty of late summer blooms, but the fall colors on a sunny morning are almost too brilliant to bear. Bloom day badge goes to a volunteer magenta foxglove—because these are such attractive weeds.

    Seasons Change

    Backyard Vegetable garden
    As we move into Fall, my garden has continued its transition from not only another growing season, but another season of change – downsizing. Today, after harvesting and removing this season’s plants; I removed another raised bed, leveled the backyard and re-seeded the ground with gra...

    McIntosh Apple Harvest continues

    Backyard Trees garden and McIntosh Apple Harvesting
    We’re whittling away at the apples on the tree, one or two buckets at a time. For Harvest Day, I picked two buckets full, plus enough to refill any dents we had put in the other baskets in the garage from donating apples to our neighbor. We’ve been skirting the frosts, and although we...

    apple trees Harvesting, fireweed Seeding, and apple Harvesting
    This time of year is so overwhelming, with the back to class rush, the eager young faces, so little time and yet so much to do. We have had no significant rain in 2 and a half months, but still nature is offering so much. Trees are turning fantastical colors, and bearing fruit at the same time. W...

All shades of Gold, Brown, Red and Orange surround us, with the occasional green still showing, and the evergreens of course, stay with us through the icy, cold breathe of winters grip. The wind whistles through the leaves, m...

    December Harvest Day

    evergreen huckleberry Harvesting and Sunshine Blue Harvesting
    “Does it ALWAYS rain so much?” asked our Italian exchange student a week ago. Some nature spirit must have heard her because a record high pressure has settled in for the past week, bringing cold foggy mornings and cool partly sunny afternoons. Only 2 nights of killing frost so far t...
