FREEZE WARNING…AGAIN

Our friends at the National Weather Service

Are predicting a freeze…again.

I think they really mean it this time.

So I’ve spent this weekend.

Picking what is left of my garden.

That’s my ritual as the end of the season

Draws near.

Make sure I’ve got plenty of pesto

In the freezer.

Pick all the green tomatoes

Spread them out on newspaper

In the cool garden house

To ripen.

Pull the pots of Sego Palms

Out of their big pots

And move them into the garden house.

Pick Cockscomb

And Hydrangea

For flower arrangements

And hope they hold until

The Loaves & Fishes fundraiser in November.

This year the fundraiser is a week later

And the freeze is coming a few days early.

Do you think it will hold for almost

3 weeks?

We’ll see.

That’s one of the things I love about gardening

The mystery

The experimenting

The challenge.

And if the Cockscomb doesn’t make it,

We’ll just find another way.

Rosemary maybe

Pots and pots of cut rosemary.

That would make the place smell amazing

And what could be more appropriate

For a food bank fundraiser?

So my garden house if full

Of the rituals

Of the season.

I’m lucky to have a place

To play

All year long.

In June I was honored to be visited

by Oklahoma Gardening.

They came to film my garden house.

It aired yesterday.

The place is filling up

And the tulip bulbs

Haven’t even arrived yet!

More fun to come.

Thanks, John

For giving me such a wonderful

Place to play.

Here is literally the last rose of summer.

    Your garden house is delightful, but I really laughed about your fear that there wouldn’t be enough larkspur reseeding. Oh my, I have it everywhere now even though it was originally planted in only one garden space.
