GLOW…A SMILE

There really isn’t much about glow in this post unless you count the sun and smile on my face when I see my garden.  I’ll try to do better later in the week.

I promised to keep you posted on my fall garden so these photos are from the third week of it.

On the scale of life I believe gardening is high on the list.  True it is hard work and sometimes in vain.  Sometimes I toil and my efforts just don’t pay off.  Today was a prefect example.  Over the summer I planted sweet potatoes, my first try at it.  This morning I dug the potatoes and found only a handful of small ones.  I guess I got over-anxious and pulled them up too soon.  But that’s okay because I needed the space they were taking up in my raised bed.  In their place I planted beets, radishes and carrots.  Now we have to see how they will grow.  I’ve never had much luck with beets.  I know for some places it is too late in the season to plant these vegetables but I don’t think so in Central Florida.  Our seasons are much different from most places.  And it was definitely too hot for them in the summer.  I just ask God to please bless them so I’ll have enough to share.

Collards,onions and banana peppers.

Maybe from these pictures you can tell how everything is growing.  Gardening is a slow process.  The peppers are also doing fine.  I was able to pick a few of the hot ones this morning and make pickled peppers. Now I’ll just have to find someone to eat them since I don’t like spicy food.  But I do like growing the peppers.

Thank you for stopping by and please come back soon.  We should have collards and mustard ready for Thanksgiving.  Ahhhh Thanksgiving in the south.  Y’all come, you hear.
