Today, I’ll show you my garden again. If you’re curious, just take a look at what the garden looked like in August and September. The main part of the garden is already prepared for winter, but I still have some goodies in my garden beds. Luckily it’s pretty warm for the begin of November, otherwise I would already have put my garden to winter sleep 😉 Okay, let’s start our tour!
In the outdoor area, leek and celery are the only things left. Both of these veggies tolerate cooler temperatures and raw weather. That’s also the reason why I will still let them grow for a while. We’re going to see, how happy I’ll be with the harvest. The celery doesn’t seem to develop big roots- as far as I can see. But at least, I can still use its leaves. The leek makes me pretty happy, as it has still grown a lot over the last month.
My tomatoes are still in the green house and they ripen slowly, but they still ripen. Furthermore, the leaves of my sweet potato plants are starting to die. I’m really looking forward to harvesting these, but I’ll give them another two weeks of time, because I planted them very late.
Moreover, I do have some bell peppers and a pepperoni in my green house. The bell peppers still need some time to ripen, but the first are turning red now. Speaking about the pepperoni, I will probably dig it out and overwinter it at home, because the plant is so beautiful and still full of life.
This is today’s harvest: a few tomatoes, a beautiful red bell pepper and lots of fresh thyme- this baby grows like crazy here 😉 Actually this still looks like summer… but it doesn’t feel like summer anymore. Anyways, I’m happy about the break from gardening lying ahead of me, but I’m already looking forward to next year as well.
I’m going to finish this post off with some flowers- just like always. Our roses are really stunning. They are still blooming so beautifully and I take one home with me each week to spread the joy of its beauty in my flat 🙂 Well, I hope you liked this virtual tour around my garden.
See you next time!
