Here are some photos of our backyard gardens in
November a few years ago. Back then, we were harvesting all of our remaining pepper plants.
Our winter vegetable crops are coming along fine: Swiss chard, lettuce,
cabbages, onions, garlic, and kale. Back then, we must of had some beneficial rain. The weeds and grass were quite a lush green. Daytime temperatures were then from 50F to 65F.
"Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of
beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed."
- Walt Whitman
"I wake up some mornings and sit and
have my coffee and look out at my beautiful garden, and I
go, 'Remember how good this is. Because you can lose it.' "
- Jim Carrey
"Everyone can identify with a
fragrant garden, with beauty of sunset, with the quiet
of nature, with a warm and cozy cottage."
- Thomas Kincade
"Complexity excites the
mind, and order rewards it. In the garden,
one finds both, including vanishingly small
orders too complex to spot, and orders so vast
the mind struggles to embrace them."
- Diane Ackerman
"Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to
be walking in a garden to know it."
"Show me your garden and I shall tell you what you are."
- Alfred Austin
