this is the place to share what you grow in the garden. How you grow it. What you do with your harvest.
The best produce is what you grow.I have had a garden for years. So if you grow a garden this is the place for you from old pro to just starting.
Lets talk abought what we grow and how we use what we grow.

Lemon tree

My Meyer lemons are just about ready to pick. A very good crop this year. I will use some and some I will give away. Also I like to juice some and have that saved in the freezer in small containers.

Christmas Camellia

My plant on the front porch is blooming nicely this year. It is so enjoyable to see flowers this time of the year.

I thought I would share this picture with you of the cute snowmen my friend helped make. They are made from concrete blocks used in walkways, etc.

Ginger Harvesting

Well I dug up a pot of my ginger today, several very small pieces I planted back in a separate pot in my garage window, the rest I'm going to slice and candy. The stalks and leaves I want to do something with, any ideas? This is my first ginger harvest since Diana Poole started me on this journey back last winter. Thanks Diana. The smell is absolutely amazing!!!!! Just from this little pot the entire house smells of a sweet peppery ginger smell, and that's just from cleaning it!!!

a beautiful fall day!

our garden is done, i'm still cutting brush for the burn pile....which has gotten a bit out of hand, Ron is having breathing issues with smoke, we may have a guy come haul it away. Better safe than sorry.
i'm still getting some zinnias, and my chair covered with the black eyed susan vine is still doing wonderful! marigolds look good, and even the vinca's are still vibrant (although another cool night may finish them. it's too breezy to burn anyway.....

goose season started this weekend, we awoke to multiple gun shots.....don't see many flying over the river, not sure WHAT they're shooting at. have you ever been in a duck blind? those guys have everything with them but the kitchen wonder they spend so much time in them. lol

big trucks are still rolling into the elevator, they are only take beans down here....such a nasty, dusty crop....bean dust really sets off my allergies....sniff, sniff barges are running hot and heavy too...getting coal up north and crops down south......a busy time here.

that's what's going on here, and it's too nice to be cooped up inside....guess I'll go outside and play
