Hereford Garden Almanac

24 October 2010

Although our fall continues to be a dry one, and the foliage colors seem to less brilliant than usual, our garden is really looking good. Drop over some time to check us out. This Sunday, we had a great group that worked on harvesting sweet potatoes, weeding, and preparing beds for their winter nap. Thanks to all that participated.

Although we have to water, which is usually not necessary in the fall, the lack of bugs is really making gardening a delight. Our fall profusion of greens is awesome, and we have cabbage and broccoli that are looking great as well. Also, check out the sugar snap peas that are reaching for the sky.

We need to have a meeting in the near future to get ideas for what to plant in next spring’s garden.

Please stop by to enjoy the beauty and the bounty and to scratch in the dirt a bit. It’s a great way to unwind, connect to the earth, and be reminded of what’s really important.

  1. The broccoli is always looks great and beautiful,and this is a plant in the cabbage family, whose large flower head is used as a vegetable,and this is most closely resembles cauliflower, which is a different cultivator group of the same species,so in the garden,this looks beautiful and awesome,and presents a beautiful view.
