Meet Me In The Garden Pt. 19, 20, and 21

Sorry everyone for the late update. It has been the most craziest fall weather happening here. It has been raining cats and dogs most of the time. Hard for me to go out and photograph my progress. The most recent photos I have of my garden are from today, which is rare because I usually photograph once every week. I have also been doing plenty of running around with work and hanging out. In these three weeks, Fall has officially begun, October has rolled in, I've been to New York a few times and even met Jermaine Jackson of the Jackson 5 and the brother of the late Michael Jackson. So I've been quite busy.

The garden is coming close to the conclusion of the gardening season. People have been clearing their boxes and prepping them for next year. We still have tomatoes, peppers, and collards growing. My mom pulled up most of the red cabbage and all of the green cabbage. She's prepared some as well for dinner along with fried green tomatoes. There is still one eggplant hanging in plot 2 from the last time. Some were starting to grow but the rain and cold air we've been having may have stopped them. Eventually we will cut that one off and try to prepare a meal using within it. After a while I will have to wrap up my series of "Meet Me In The Garden" until next year but I'll will make you aware when it will conclude.

Don't worry I will keep this blog up to date with tips and garden related experiences over the winter months. So stay tuned! :-)

Meet Me In The Garden Pt. 17 and 18

I've been away from blogging about my lovely garden for a while but don't worry I have photos t5o share. It's getting closer to the end of the summer so we have been picking some veggies from the garden. I still have collards growing, cabbage, tomatoes, a cucumber or squash, peppers and an eggplant. I'm so excited because my mom has been using the vegetables in her meals cooking fried green tomatoes, adding them to salads and making cabbage.

Meet Me In The Garden Pt. 16

This is going on week 16 already. Time is sure flying by fast. It's so cool how this garden has grown and provided us with great meals free at charge and much more healthier. This was such an amazing way to spend my summer and to track the progress is even more amazing.

Week 16 wasn't an easy week. It encountered heavy rain and wind from Hurricane Irene when it touched basis on the east coast. The some of the stems on the tomato plants snapped or wilted over. People who grew corn, had corn stalks falling over. The plants did benefit from the rain because of the heat prior to the storm drying them out. Plus they were fed plant food earlier that week.
