I was on the road last week and didn’t have a chance to post this group of photos from gardeners around the region–all of them taken before the widespread frost/freeze of last night.
Enjoy these late-season garden photos–still lots of green and color.
Next up: your photos of post-frost gardens. Yes, I’m looking for dead squash and cuke vines with fruit hanging next to blackened leaves; or, one of those death-to-all-weeds images. (I actually don’t bother clearing my garden until a good freeze has reduced the sheer volume of fall weeds.)
So, most growing may have stopped, but gardens are still photographically interesting–we’re just into a new phase of the cycle, eh?
Send your mid-fall garden photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to tell me where your garden (or porch planters) are located in our region.
This first group comes from John Casserly who lives just outside of Canton.
This one came to us from Nancy Howard, in the northern Adirondacks:
The next group is from Louise Scarlett who has been gardening in Rossie for decades (and is one of the best garlic-growers I know):
Finally, this one from Harold Shippee, who has shared other photos this summer from Unicome Farm. He reports that “…this past summer we were overwhelmed with beans, lettuce and sunflowers; corn and tomatoes a disappointment.”
Well, Harold’s photo was taken last week. Again, we’re interested in seeing how your gardens are holding up after widespread frost and freezing. Send your photos to email@example.com.
