This Week in the Garden: Turning the Corner Towards Autumn

As much as I love the colours of autumn, I hate to say good-bye to summer.  In the last week, the evening air had taken on an autumn chill and the morning are growing darker by the day.  No matter how hard I try to cling to summer, autumn is slowly creeping in.  The signs are there in and around the garden as well.  No colourful turning leaves yet, but soon no doubt...

Elsewhere in the garden, our autumn/winter veggie seedlings are still growing nicely.  The last of the summer peppers are still going string and we have a bumper crop of jalapenos and mixed chilies - any suggestions on use and storage for the winter?

What's happening in and around your garden this week?  Whatever your garden/green news, we would love to hear about it. Please leave a comment or post us a message on the GiRL Facebook page I look forward to sharing our garden with you as it grows.  


  1. Love chilis. We pickle our extras, but some friends dry and freeze theirs. Haven't tried, but sounds simple enough especially the freezer.

    1. My husband cut up and froze some of them just a few days ago - they are very easy to use that way. I have pickled in the past as well, but hadn't thought about drying my own - perhaps an experiment for the dehydrator! :)


Thanks ever so much for leaving us a comment! We read every one and appreciate you taking the time to say hello and share your thoughts.
