2011 Garden .. It's A Wrap
The past few days were peak for autumn colors in the yard. I even brought in a few boughs of maple leaves to use as 'floral' arrangements for the baby shower. This year the sweet peas I planted produced an abundance of blooms .. they are one of my favorite flowers to pick and bring indoors. All of the seed pods were harvested to plant next year.
It really does take many years of practice to have gardening become second nature .. even then there is something new to learn. I have not gotten up to speed with extending the growing season using protective coverings .. perhaps when hubby retires he will lend a hand and the end of gardening season won't be as demanding (not).
For now, we have more food stored away than any previous years. It was a lot of work keeping up with canning and freezing. Who knows, maybe I'll have time to start blogging again :)
