squash and melon harvest by rochelle greayer at www.pithandvigor.com

We had fun this week making final harvests.   (is your garden still producing…ours is really winding down fast!).

Our little lawn tractor trailer is full of every kind of melon, squash and pumpkin you can imagine (and there was more than just this!).   If I have some extra time this weekend I am going to try (for the first time) to plant a winter garden.  Some kale, beets, leeks and lettuce.  I am curious how late I can harvest things here.   Have you planted a winter garden?  I am curious if there are any tips and tricks you might advise.

Here are a few things to enjoy over the weekend.

I did a fun post about making indoor gardens over at Apartment Therapy this week – you might want to check that out too.

Before & After: An Incredible Yard in Ohio

I found this week’s makeover just a few minutes ago over at a blog called Sullivan and Murphy, and as soon as I’m finished typing this entry up I’m going to head back over to swoon just a bit more. As you can see from this before shot, the backyard wasn’t much more than your typical…

Color Thoughts For The Harvest

With the Thanksgiving Floral Arrangement Class coming up I have been out in the garden gathering materials. Thinking about color palettes-wanting something bright and sunny for the table. Today I decided to cut up the rust toned mums which have totally had it in the container. Yesterday I  started hacking some old grapevines out of…

Happy Spring, Something For Japan & Magnolia Bugs

Happy spring!  (in case you didn’t know, today March 21st is the official first day for 2011).  I celebrated early by killing it in my garden.  Over the weekend, I built nesting boxes, burned, stacked wood, repaired the Garden Way cart, spread woodchips, and moved lots of debris to the compost pile.  I have a…
