|Look at that beautiful tangle of green bean vines. I am definitely|
going to have to plant running beans next year. No bush beans for me.
|This isn't all of them, but I thought it was a cool picture.|
The eggplants still look beautiful and I have 3 growing eggplants on 2 plants. I can't wait to eat some eggplant ravioli.
It is still very dry and I am having to water about 2 times a week in October. It just seems wrong to have to water in October. But my garden is looking better than it has the entire year, so I will water.
My herbs are going great guns. I have thyme and lemon balm trying to take over the place. I moved the oregano to that bed in the front yard and it is much happier there. It's probably doubled in size since I did that.
I really want a lovage plant, but 2 attempts at starting from seed have met with complete and dismal failure. I may have to resort to ordering from an online company that has the plants already growing, but I may wait until spring to put in the order. I also want a lime thyme because it sounds so funny when you say it out loud. I do have a lime basil that is yummy. I eat the leaves right there in the garden. I am also planning to buy a pineapple sage for the front yard, because I love the thought that sage was always planted because it symbolized wisdom. I could sure use some wisdom. Maybe I'll plant sage so I can cultivate wisdom. (ok. Bad joke. But I am laughing here at home. Somebody has to laugh at my jokes.) I am also interested in some scented geraniums, but have had a little difficulty in locating any. I may have to order them online too.
