Work continues on my 2018 Almanack & Garden Journal. With the holiday season here, I expect to have enough free time to complete it before the New Year arrives. In the meantime, here are a few photos from the remainder of the summer since my last garden update:
The okra always flourishes in the late summer heat of central Oklahoma
There is always more okra than can be eaten fresh, so this year I began pickling it as well
My one surviving Moonflower finally began blooming in September.
By late September the ornamental corn had dried.
The ornamental corn variety “Bloody Butcher” is probably the best all-around I’ve ever grown.
It was a mild Fall and everything continued producing well into October
By early November garden clean-up was finished and the 2017 gardening season was closed!
