Good morning. This is us at our first home garden in 2001 when we moved in with Mom. By November, the turnips were doing great!

We are looking forward to cooler weather to start our Fall garden. We still have the shade up and water mornings when it is cool.

Generally, we plant leafy greens to take us through the winter months. The more woody-stemmed peppers and eggplants do better in the summer.

The pepper leaves have been the choice food for tomato worms this year. Lee's the one who notices the bare stems. I'm still looking at the dirt, mulch and water under the pots.

The front yard gives us hope for the future. We can keep an eye on things going in and out. The thought of creating beauty there inspires us.

Tomorrow we go to the senior community garden. We have a few beds there. One of the hose bibs is leaking. I think I have a washer that fits. We water three times a week. Again, no planting for a few more weeks until it's cooler.

Nice to chat with you. Happy to see any photos of what you've got growing!
