How Does Your Garden Grow?

 

Temperature outside this morning is BRRRRRRR


Miracle of miracles! Blogger uploaded the pictures in numerical order. Ice on the bird bath makes a handy spot to fill the birdfeeders. The cup on the right is spread on the ground for the squirrels and ground feeders. They eat the inexpensive seed. The birds pick out the sunflower seeds but won't eat the millet.


Time to bring in Ink and the rest of the lawn gewgaws.


Sunrise


Frost on the leaves


After the lawn guy cleared all the leaves, the oak trees decided to drop their load. High winds forecast for today. Hopefully, the wind will blow the leaves to the woods.


Exploding milkweed


The Japanese maple lost its brilliant, red glow  but hasn't dropped its leaves


No more petunias or mums


Frost on Moose


One, tiny bit of Summer hanging on.


Mums not ready to give up


The inside garden lettuce is doing nicely


and the farm is starting to sprout.

How does your garden grow?

  2. Your garden is looking really tidy. My only flowers are the 3 sorts of chrysanthemums. Keep warm, stay safe!

  3. Feeding all the critters, sweet! That sunrise peeking through the trees is a lovely shot :) The indoor garden looks like fun. I still have some summer plants still blooming and a few potted plants still on the patio. Obviously no frost here yet.

    1. Because of standard time, sunrise isn't at the crack of stupid. I'll let Himself know about your comment about the lettuce. He's the farmer.

  5. Everything looks so so so cold there. It made me cold looking at it.
    Here - it's chilly for sure but once we are out in the son away from the shady part of the road it feels pretty good. I look around at all the houses that are in the sun and the snow has melted off their roofs. We still have a lot of melt going on and it sounds like rain coming off the roof --- that's why I have to get out everyday and go somewhere else where it's sunny and warmer.

    1. I was surprised there were things to take pictures of. Everything mostly looked dead and brown.

  8. Wow, that lettuce looks great. Do you need a special lighting to grow indoor lettuce? I staarted winter gardening this year, with some Asian lettuce, spinach, green kale and lettuce. So far it looks good, but it was also very warm around here.

    1. Yes, the hydroponic gardens (Aerogarden) comes with its own special lighting that can be set on a timer.

  9. Your weather station never fails to amaze me. You have received more frost than I. I like the indoor lettuce garden, but was wondering if you bring Ink inside in the winter. My garden still has mint, but everything else has come inside.

    1. Yes, I bring Ink and all the garden gewgaws in for the Winter. Ink gets a spot in the living room under a chair near the heater where he sometimes liked to hang out.
