Fall Chores Begin

With the weath so nice, I decided that it was time to pot up the poor patio hibiscus that have been in very temporary homes since we moved in July. The evenings are getting cooler and they need to be inside soon, so I had to make an effort. They are now safely in their own pots and can come inside when the need to.

I also dried some seeds from the fuzzy peach tomato. This yellow tomato has a sweet taste and a really fuzzy skin. Sometimes the skin has a hint of red on it making them look just like a real peach!  I soaked the seeds for 48 hrs in warm water then dried them on paper towel. They are now ready to be put into envelopes until spring planting time.

Now time to clean the gardener up!

  1. When I saw your photos I thought you would enjoy Seed Savers Exchange’s seed and starter plant catalog is online and is a photographic feast for the eyes — and a cure for the winter doldrums! The seeds and starter plants are really unique, in that many have a story — that includes seeds passed down from generation to generation of families and in communities. There’s great information in it too. Planting an heirloom vegetable or flower garden is a great way to preserve our cultural heritage and biodiversity. Website is http://www.seedsavers.org.
