What?  I was just talking yesterday about the abundance if the summer garden.  Whats this about winter?

The reality is that this time of summer, I have to start thinking about the fall garden.  Its the time I start having to think about when we usually get a killing frost (end of September) and counting backwards from then to know how much time I have to get fall veggies in the ground.  Frost is only about 9 weeks away! Hard to believe I know, but there it is.  I have a bit over 60 days of growing time left.  Blink, and winter , or certainly fall weather, will be here.
So, as summer crops start fading , fall amd winter crops will take their place.

The garlic is all pulled, and is curing on these wire shelves in the garden shed.  This is where the geese sleep. Lets hope they are not fond of garlic.

Where the garlic came out, fall crops go in.  Here I have planted carrots, beets, and turnips. 
I can still enjoy the flowers starting to bloom along the front walkway. My budget for this garden was small this year, and I only tossed some packages of seeds out. They are just beginning to show their colors.

Good ol'Cosmos....
