Salad Days and Sky Watch Friday, September 27, 2013

The fourth Friday of each month is Salad Day at Veg Plotting
and every Friday is Sky Watch Friday.

Sweet Cayenne and mild Jalapeno peppers, and Sweet 100 (red) and Sun Sugar (yellow) tomatoes
Only a few tomatoes and peppers are left for salad ingredients in the Summer garden.

'Little Marvel' peas
I started the Autumn garden at the beginning of this month.
By the end of October, we hope to be adding little green peas to our salads.

Lettuce 'Grand Rapids'
My leaf lettuce 'Grand Rapids' is coming along nicely, but I had to re-sow the head lettuce 'Bibb'

Sky Watch Friday
This is just one of the many unusual pieces of garden art at the Research Center
Yesterday we went to the West Tennessee Research and Education Center in
Jackson, Tennessee for Pumpkin Field Day. The morning began very foggy, but it cleared off
mid-morning to reveal beautiful blue skies.

Pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins!
If you are in the area, you should go see their pumpkin harvest exhibits.
They will be on display until December 1.

Have a beautiful week-end!

Of course, seeing all those wonderful pumpkins,
I was reminded to join Orange You Glad It's Friday: Click Here!
