Nov. 2016 Avatar; or Just Sick of your Avatar!

Post  Scorpio Rising on 10/29/2016, 10:57 pm

OK, I am already moving mentally into November after the clean out today.  Same this adorable bumblebee on my volunteer Cottage Red marigolds, and he actually was still there when I got out back with my camera! 




ADORABLE!  Bumblebees are the bomb!

I don't think I will ever get sick of my Avatar. BIG hug

I may replace it sometime  with another picture of my Jazz.

We just got our first serious harvest of kale. I was afraid it would be tough or bitter, but it was AWESOME! I am absolutely thrilled with the dwarf curly variety. It made it through our horrendous summer and is definitely worthy of avatar status. cheers

Since compost and a new compost bin are the focus of my attention at this time, I will go with a bin avatar.

Can't believe I've STILL got a cherry tomato plant plugging and chugging along on my "squash arch".

Same here. I found a nice, ripe little plum tomato while cleaning up. That was a great snack. Cool

I had 4 ripe Cherokee Purples and a small,handful of Sungold when I pulled the plants. And a bunch of greenies.  One last BLT!   Or 2.... Eat fast!  Those maters do not wait!  All my CPs had crack so bad.....uneven watering, and I am sure a deficiency because I used store stuff for my start up compost.

My tomatoes stole the show in my SFGS this year- so they will continue to be my Avatar. I had so many different varieties that I literally lost track.

Time for a new avatar. I'd prefer something with beetles, but they are pretty much out of season. So here's a photo I took of some of the tabletop-ripened tomatoes that lent themselves to a heart-shape on the cutting board; a mix of Green Zebra, Black Krim, and Rutgers.

Since there is nothing much happening in the garden I decided the morning sunrise today was worth preserving, from my front porch --
