Sunny Days and Frosty Nights, November 22, 2013

Pecan Tree
This week has been sunny, but with a cold wind blowing.
And on several nights we had below freezing temperatures.

Many trees have lost their leaves, but a few plants are still holding on to their Autumn colors.

Limestone Bibb Lettuce
Just two words on growing lettuce in the Autumn: Mulch and Cover.
Lettuce does grow much slower in Autumn than in Spring, but it is good to have something still growing in the garden in November.

Have a Wonderful Week-end!

  1. Lovely images! The spirea has pretty Autumn colors. Have a happy weekend!

  2. I love the name of your lettuce! And that's a very good tip about mulching as well as covering, thank you :)

  3. We seem to be having a great autumn. The colors have been great and just get deeper and deeper with the days. Big winds today though, lots of trees going to be giving up their leaves.

  4. There is something super special about reading about freezing cold temperatures at night and slow growing lettuce on the other side of the world! It makes you very grateful for the fact that although they say our Melbourne Spring is about a month behind, and that because we've had so much rain everything has gone wild in the garden, that we have summer round the corner!
    Have a great weekend

  5. I would love to have a pecan tree like that on our property. We have 2 we planted, but both are very young as far as pecan tree's go.

  6. Yummmm, Bibb lettuce, so tender and sweet. Wish I had planted more this year.

  7. Nice photographs. I like the pecan tree against the blue sky.

  8. What a magnificent pecan tree! I don't see a squirrel in sight. They must be finished with their autumn harvest. Happy Thanksgiving!

  9. Nice shots! Spirea --aha-- I've seen it here, but did not know the name [thanks!]; they are pretty much finished for the season-- sigh --

  10. Lovely autumn shots♫ Have a wonder filled weekend!

  11. Being near nature has a calming effect on anybody :) Happy weekend!

  12. Our lettuce plants are growing so fast you can almost hear them!! But it is spring!

  13. I'm eating lettuce nooow!
    Beautiful pictures :D


  14. My childhood home in Houston had an enormous pecan tree, we had an assembly-line nut fest. My spirea are small, I haven't noticed any fall color on them, yours are so pretty! My outdoor winter veggies are kale, collards, turnips, and winter radishes. They are not so cute but I like them.


I enjoy your comments!
