It’s saying good bye to Summer and time to embrace the cooler weather. I took this picture on a Friday morning, the weather was still nice and warm back in the first week of September .
The weather has changed drastically in the first week of October. My Thai eggplants are doing exceptionally well this year, it’s still thriving in this cooler weather. It is over 5 feet tall, almost as tall as me.
I’m proud to say that I’m an organic gardener. It’s so obvious by the holes in the leaves but beauty is not everything to me. I don’t think some people realize how harmful it is to the environment when they use harsh chemical in their garden.
The chili peppers are a very hardy plant and they don’t need a lot of caring after.
I plan to make them into crush dried peppers.
The two Gardenia plants in my garden have gotten real big this year and they produce flowers from early Spring until now.
This one is a strange looking moth like insect.
A potted Chrysanthemum next to the pond.
It looks like the Brussels sprout loves the cooler weather. I’ve been spraying it with Neem oil and it seems to help.
My plan of expanding my garden didn’t go as plan. I planted my Fall vegetables in the old cucumber and tomato planting beds. I tried my luck with the broccoli again, and hopefully this time the rabbit won’t like the smell of the Neem oil and would leave my broccoli alone.
I planted 3 heads of cabbage this time.
