Baby it's cold outside....

Autumn is a lovely time to live in the Garden State.
There are festivals and pumpkin patches, corn mazes
and hay rides, haunted graveyard tours and haunted mansions.
Apple picking and cider donuts.
The air is crisp and the skies tend to be blue.The air gets colder.
Our garden is put to bed for the most part, although we will try a little gardening
through the winter this year in the mini greenhouse we built.
Right now it is waiting to have something planted inside.
Until then it holds some potted plants.I am not sure how long it will last,
but all experiments lead somewhere.Living a sustainable life is our goal.
I have not put a lot of energy into this blog, most of my time gets devoted to my daughter,
and the blog I maintain about our experiences homeschooling, but I will aim to do better
here in the future.

Clicked over from Blotanical to check out your greenhouse. Very impressive and the idea of building one doesn't seem so intimidating anymore. Also, looks like you got a great harvest this year.

You garden has me green with envy.

I can garden and get tomatoes 12 months a year here in Calif, and I still don't have a garden as fantastic as yours!

I'm gonna go stick my thumb in the ground for a few hours and see if it comes out green!
