The fall garden is planted.  And I am really looking forward to eating the salad it produces.

Mamie was in town and helped me plant.  We had a lovely day of tortilla soup, plant buying, errand running, and then a little digging in the dirt.  Having her help both made me feel like a slave driver, and also made me grateful.  She is the matriarch garden guru of our family.  And I aspire to have her knowledge!  I wish I had documented the day with pictures.  Here are a few of the final product.


We have arugula, green leaf lettuce, spinach, garlic, green onions, shallots, cilantro, parsley, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and a left over tomato plant.  Yum.

Mamie also bought me a few beauty berries that I am excited to see bloom.

In other news, I don’t know the name of this tree.  Does anyone else know?

I really love it.
