Sedum on a pumpkin

Some garden friends got together and we made a bunch of these autumn decor cuties with sedum from our gardens, craft supplies like hot glue, and mini pumpkins. Super easy, super fun. We didn’t scoop and plant with dirt, just glued them on. Maybe some of the sedums will make it enough to be rooted later. Or not.

Some moss, dried cones, and colorful sedum make a beautiful fall decor piece. Doesn’t it look like a flower?

Early girl tomatoes

This year is amazing and we are only getting started. This is about 3 pounds of Early Girl tomatoes, with the window reflecting on the shiny surface.

So many blueberries

I guess the fertilizing and compost I added at the right time, plus the fact that the bushes are over a dozen years old, had something to do with the incredible blueberry harvest this year. YUM. The pie was the best ever.

Big blueberries

I fertilized the blueberry bushes at the right time this spring, and I wasn’t stingy. They really liked it. These are almost the size of a quarter. We use mosquito netting and clothespins to close up the edges because the birds would eat them all. I think a pie is in our future.

The squirrels have left us a strawberry, heart shaped. Thank you.

Shiny cherries

We have a small cherry tree that has not had cherries for awhile, for different reasons. Hubby put a big piece of mosquito netting around one branch clipped close with clothespins, and we actually have some ripe red ones. So very shiny and sweet.

Fresh red cherries, so very shiny

Rainbow happy grilled cheese sandwich

A friend send this from Melbourne, Australia, used with permission. This is something you just don’t see every day, a rainbow grilled cheese sammie, with a happy face.

Plum blossoms, with a little help

I have a plum tree with several grafted branches of different plums. I think this branch has golden shiro plums, and it blooms the earliest. Not too many pollinators are outside yet, and in previous years I haven’t gotten much fruit set. Today I went out there and used a soft art brush, maybe 4″ wide, to help out and make like a bee. I’ve done this before and it seems to make a difference.

Interlaken grapes, but not sure

I thought our grapevine was Interlaken but the tag is gone. The internet seems to think Interlaken grapes are golden, not red. Well, I don’t know. Our vine struggled for years, very low production, but early this spring we finally cut down a couple of very nearby apple trees that were not producing what we liked and were shading the vine. What a difference! This year for the first time we have some grapes to eat. Yummy!

Kousa dogwood in the fall

Soon the Kousa dogwood leaves will begin to turn. See part of the little red fruit on the left? They are edible, if nothing to write home about. But cute!

Early Girl tomato

I did a good job planting my Early Girls (and Sungolds) and they were watered well. So sweet!

Backyard light

The days are getting shorter. A view of my backyard in the late afternoon light. Love those leek flower balls!
