We are at the end of October and I am amazed and delighted at how much of what is growing in my front yard edible landscape is still green and healthy! My fear of an ugly dead mud pit for a garden has not materialized. The garden is, of course, responding to the change of season and the annuals and summer perennials are fading and dying but they are changing into beautiful brown, orange and gold sculptures, freezing the plants in a moment of time. This is the fall 'interest' in my garden, a variation on the theme.
Still growing strong are kale, Swiss chard, cabbage, winter radishes and perennial herbs. It will be interesting to see how this garden changes into a winter landscape. Living in New England, I shouldn't have long to wait to find out.
