I was doing one last late autumn veggie garden inspection before I sent the chickens in for cleanup and found a Roma tomato still churning out tomatoes!
I bought a mostly dead stick of a poinsettia after Christmas in 2020 for 93¢. This is that little rescue 2 Christmas' later. Bounced back pretty good I'd say.
Whew! After inspection, the doxies have determined our freshly harvested sweet potatoes are not cheese or anything wrapped in bacon, so Thanksgiving is safe.
Picked what remained of the butternut squash (pumpkin pie!). Same grandparents as the "mystery pumpkins" from a couple weeks ago, so this is a family photo.
I built a bee hotel to shelter the native bees of California and the Southwest. This fall, it's proving to be a very popular spot. Here's what I learned.
Mid-autumn is a great time to do a little maintenance on the keyhole garden and get it loaded up and ready for the next growing season.
