Autumn Fruits And Vegetables In The Colony Church/Community Garden
This morning was cool enough to get some work done at the Community Garden. My bed desperately needed some clean up. The squash bugs got to my zucchini plant, and some of the flowers were just wilted from the heat of Summer. One of my sunflowers was ready to get harvested. And I needed to make some room for more Autumn/Winter vegetables.
After the clean-up and watering, Christi and Wally harvested quite a bit of okra for the food bank. I can see a delicious gumbo in the future. 😉 Meanwhile, I walked around and captured photos of both gardens. When it gets a little bit cooler here in North Texas, we all will be much busier building more raised beds, cleaning out the older raised beds and get the garden ready for the Autumn/Winter season. Here you can see what’s growing in the gardens right now:
My first attempt to grow “French Cheese” pumpkins
Hmmm, Tonya’s butternut squashes look very healthy and delicious.
What would be a garden without garden ornaments?
Hyacinth Beans (I grow them for decoration. (But I also know, they are eaten in Kenya and Vietnam.)
Christi’s garden is in full bloom. The bees and butterflies love the pineapple sage, Thai basil, and milkweed.
This is about a 8 to 9 feet okra plant.
Tonya has some beautiful purple hull pea blossoms blooming in her bed.
Serrano Peppers ?
And more okra
Watermelon or Moon & Stars melon? I’m not so sure.
