Gardening time is prime in October,
here in south Texas.
I've been so busy that I just now filled my beds
and planted seeds etc.
The raised beds are filled with great stuff
like different kinds of compost,
peat moss, vermiculite, top soil,
and other good stuff.
John Dromgoole, a gardener from Austin, Texas
created a wonderful garden blend.
He is known as the Natural Gardener
and has the longest running garden radio talk show in America.

Here is my garden today....
I planted herbs in the center bed where the sun dial is.
Where the cages are I planted pea vines.
Then I transplanted some cabbage plants,
planted some lettuces, mesclun, beets, and more
fall/winter veggie seeds.
In about 60 days it will be harvest time.
This is La Mancha, the cat.
He loves the garden,
and likes to lie down under my hibiscus.
Here he is coming up onto our patio.
He is still very shy.
He basically lives in the lot next door,
but visits us often.
He is a wild cat, but we hope to catch him
and take him to the vet one day.
A friend of mine told me her father was growing
a lot of Papaya trees from seed.
She said they were up and ready to transplant
if I wanted some.
I was thrilled to take three.
about 2 feet tall so far.
I can't wait to pick a fresh papaya!
Savor the Day!
