Earlier this week, we were at my mother’s house for our traditional Tuesday night dinner. I love having one night off a week from making dinner and it is nice to hang out with my siblings and their families, who also come. However, as I entered the house, I saw my mother’s beautiful fall display on her dining room table…
It is pretty, isn’t it?
Many of the gourds she grew herself and I like how she placed bare branches in mason jars.
Now, while I was admiring her display, I realized that I haven’t done anything to get ready for fall in my house, not to mention my garden.
So, this weekend, I will add a few bags of manure and compost to my vegetable gardens along with a sprinkling of bone and blood meal. Hopefully, I will be planting seeds and transplants soon – I promise to let you know what I plant.
In the meantime, I will gather my younger kids together and pull out our Fall / Halloween decorations (if I can just remember where I stored them 😉
When will you plant your fall garden and do you decorate your home for fall?
