My Dad Fall Garden

We can’t deny that Autumn is finally here, as for us the weather is getting cooler and the leaves start to change colors. It has been a while since I updated my dad’s garden, it’s nice to wake up and see it in the early morning hour.

And not everything is pretty, but the attraction is definitely there.

This is some hot stuff, no pun intended.

It is time to harvest.

And also time to collect seeds for next year planting season.

The end of a Summer garden, but the beginning of Fall planting season.  My sister planted a variety of Fall vegetables this year.

I do miss seeing the horse farm.  It seems like a long time ago when I saw them roaming beyond that fence, and it is a “once upon a time” story when things are plentiful and all sins were forgiven.

  1. It does feel more like autumn in NC. Out here everything is still green for a while.

    Btw I got my mom a Crape Myrtle bush this summer. It’s been doing well until the nights got cooler and now it has powdery mildew. I’ve spray it with Neem oil and it seems to be looking better. I didn’t realize Crape Myrtle would have this problem since it looks like such a carefree plant.

    Also love the last photo… what kind of tree is that?

    • Hi Cambree, we have several Crape Myrtle trees and they pretty much carefree, Bo topped them annually to prevent them from getting too tall. We get several young plants each year and he would give them away to his friends. I guess with the cooler weather, I notice the leaves start to change color in our area, I think more so up in the mountain.

      The last photo is my dad’s neighbor’s yard and I think it is a Dwarf Weeping Cherry Tree. I think this one is about 5 year old.

        • Thanks Cambree. I like the weeping willow trees but Bo seems to think that they look too sad and he would not plant them at all. I wonder if it’s just a superstition.

  2. I guess it is that time of the year for you guys. It is still feels like summer time here in my part of the world. The temperature still in the mid 80’s and will be mid 90’s toward the end of the week.

    • seeharhed, the Fall will fly by fast, I hope we get to visit the mountain to see the leaves. We had a very hot and humid summer which I didn’t mind so much, but I do welcome the cooler weather. I’m just not ready for the snow yet. 🙂
