La Belle's Hobby Farm: Death of a Garden



Odd as I am sure it will appear to some, I can think of no better form of personal involvement in the cure of the environment than that of gardening. A person who is growing a garden, if he is growing it organically, is improving a piece of the world. He is producing something to eat, which makes him somewhat independent of the grocery business, but he is also enlarging, for himself, the meaning of food and the pleasure of eating.
~ Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays

In October, I am writing about all things autumnal: from art to spooky books, author interviews, recipes, and autumn-inspired writing prompts AND participating in the Two Pages-a-Day writing challenge.


M
 y autumn garden update today is wordless.  And why not? It’s raining, it’s cold, and I’d rather be writing about spooky books and fall recipes.  So enjoy these pictures of my garden in the slow stages of demise (Bwhahahaa!) and check back to tomorrow for a ghastly book review and some warm gingerbread.


What seeds are you saving this year?
