I am always rearranging stuff. My perennials get
over crowded and thin them out. I planted tomatoes
in containers and I like that for me. I enjoy
going out and picking one fresh off the vine
to eat, and enjoy looking at the landscape.

I have bird boxes, baths, and feeders. So I have
a lot of little buddies to keep me company when
I am outside. I have a groundhog I have been at
odds with, finally I gave up, and he lives there
too. He is cute and doesn't bother anything except
for his home.

Hope everyone is enjoying the day today.
All the best, Linda

I'm starting to get nice cucumbers, the pumpkins will also be nice. Tomatoes are just starting to turn, way late due to a cool summer...
I need to get out and weed - but need to stay out of the sun, which is what the garden needs.

Your garden sounds like mine, - this year the peas did well, the beans came in just as we were leaving on vaction,so we ot one good picking. Tomatoes are coming, but slow, it's been too cold, .. so same for peppers, if we get any at all. Harvesting cuke and potatoes finally, lots and lots of pears and apples .. huge carrots. Onions, well forget them, need a new strategy or them. ... Brussels sprouts were great, so far, too, could go on :-)

This year I planted a big veggie garden and learned lots about what is ready to harvest and when and what works and doesn't. Next year same variety but different layout.

Beans, peas, tomatoes, peppers, onions, carrots, beets, cucumber, lettuce.

Every year I say I'm going to quit trying to have a veggie garden because I have too much else to maintain with a big flower and herb garden and lots of landscaping. BUT I have perennial stuff in the veggie garden, like elephant garlic, sunchokes, strawberries and blueberries. So I've been thinking about focusing on those things and getting them to do really well, maybe plant a few tomato plants but nothing else. I want to grow more zinnias and marigolds, cosmos and balloon flowers in the flower garden. And I need to move the surprise lilies somewhere else but I haven't figured that out yet. Yikes--too much to do!


WHEE!

We still are battling the weeds in my garden, so that is one thing we will do over the winter.

I am planing to put my Pumpkin and squash plants in large containers by the patio, freeing up the space in my garden.

I was given several Heirloom Tomatoes and saved the seeds. Am also collecting Flower seeds from wild flowers around here. They would grow best in my flower garden.

I would love to grow sweet corn and let my pole beans grow up on them. We'll see how that works out.

Other than that we have made no plans.

Wow you are a lot further along than I. I was only planning to make my rows wider for the ease of harvesting. Would love to add more flowers but it seems this year has gone by so quickly, our summer has been way to short this year. But I have been wanting to add some old type roses.

I want to be the person my Dog thinks I am!

With summer soon ending and as I look around my garden, I've been mentally thinking of what needs to be done for next year.

I've decided to plant my tomatoes in pots next year because my dad did and it worked well for him. I've decided that I want to plant more lilies, irises, crocuses, purple coneflower, black-eyed susans and miniature roses. I also want to put a hosta in the garden beside my deck. There's already one there but I think it needs another.

What are you planning for next year?
