31 Days of October, Day 12

Today felt like fall. Low, cool temps, low humidity, breezy … sweater weather. It was perfect for outdoor yard work preparing for winter. Until our first frost, the garden will continue to produce but cold weather is on tap for the next week with overnight temps in the 30s.


A renegade limb on the maple tree beside the deck is turning burgundy while everything else is still green.

“Gentle Heat”

Herbs, chives

Late season bloom … it will never make a pumpkin.

Fall tomatoes

The autumn garden, played out and ready to be put to bed for winter

Almost the last of the jalapenos

This afternoon I tackled this flower garden while Mr. Mitchell mowed….

… and got it halfway finished before we stopped for the day.
