I've been on vacation this week and today I have been able to devote to the fall garden. It was a BEAUTIFUL morning.... Cool with a pretty thick fog that got thicker as I was in the garden. Picked okra, pulled a bunch of turnips (6 quarts canned), picked some collard greens (6 quarts canned), and picked some swiss chard (probably 6-7 quarts to can.... not that far yet).

It's been a gorgeous afternoon with lots of sunshine and hardly any wind to speak of.

Thanks for the nice comments!

It's a lot of work but I really love doing it. I guess my dad's gardening when I was a kid rubbed of on me, AND I get to play with some really neat toys! The #1 tiller that came with my Cub 123 has come in VERY handy, as you can see in the pictures. I'm praying for the frost to hold off just a bit longer so that my cabbage, acorn squash, and pie pumpkins have a little more time to mature. Shouldn't be much longer. I'm amazed that the okra is still doing as well as it is, although it is showing signs of slowing down. It definitely liked the 95-100* weather we had not too long ago. Cupboards are overflowing already, but none will go to waste. Several friends are enjoying some of the proceeds as well. One lady in particular that is from Mississippi originally is VERY appreciative of the fresh okra. She made us a home-made blueberry cobbler in return. Man, was that GOOD!!!!
