It is a beautiful sunny day here in Colorado. It might even get up into the 70’s. No matter how beautiful today is there is one thing that keeps reminding that it is fall and will be winter soon. No it is not the generally colder weather most days, or the trees without their leaves…its my garden or its lack of fruitfulness (if that is a word) to be more exact.
Up until this week, Monday to be exact, I was still picking tomatoes and green beans. But now all I see when I look out my bedroom window that over looks my garden is a big heaping pile of wilted tomato, pepper, bean and broccoli plants. By pile I just mean that the plants have all wilted onto each other, not that I have actually started to clear out my garden, that would mean I would have to be motivated, and for now I am just going to be sad. I’ll miss you garden…until next year, I’ll be thinking of you.
