Seed purge

It was tough, but I emptied my basket of saved seeds and threw away all that were packed for use before 2012. Whew, that was difficult! I even found myself pulling the trash can back out to "save" some, but saw how absurd this was and let them go. What an odd hoarding disorder!

Garlic day

A little late, but I selected the best looking outer cloves from a few of my garlic bulbs (harvested this summer) and got them planted today. The smaller inner cloves are simmering with tomatoes and anchovy filets on the stove! We will have garden lettuce and carrots in a lunch salad today as well. Such a warm and sunny day calling me outside, it was impossible to resist.

Even when a garden season, like this fall for me, is a bit of a bust, there are still wonderful things to harvest here and there and excitement about NEXT season!
