Most people don’t think to plant in the Fall but I think Fall gardening is as interesting as Spring gardening. When I started this garden, I had Fall gardening in mind and last year’s cabbage was not much of a success. I had so many caterpillars feasting on my cabbages and I hope to find a new solution to take care of the problem this year. Last year I had to hand pick the caterpillar off my cabbages one by one, not the most enjoying thing to do. This photo was from last year’s Fall garden.
I don’t spend as much time in my garden as I would like, but the garden is coming along well. And here is the end of September already, the bees are as busy as ever trying to collect what is left before the flowers start to dry and dying in the months to come.
I am happy to see that something is growing in my pots. These are from Loquat fruits that a friend has sent to me all the way from sunny California. I planted the seeds back in July and now I have several young plants.
One of my favorite flower plants in my garden is the gardenia, they are so easy to care for and I love the aroma of the flower.
I still have plenty of chili peppers left even after I harvested a basket full the day before.
