This is all that is left after the heat of summer took its toll, not to mention the critters I fought to keep those plants alive. Too bad they didn't have just a few more weeks of warm weather to finish growing and to ripen on the vine. I'm hopeful that they'll ripen indoors now though.
I also needed to bring my Meyer lemon tree inside for the winter. I have nurtured the little twig all summer, and I hope she'll be happy beside this sunny window in my kitchen until next spring. I really think next summer I'll see blooms and some lemons.
My blueberry bushes should be able to winter outdoors, but I will keep a close watch on them. I am already looking forward to next spring and trying to do better with my gardening.
I have a couple of books to study over the winter months that might help me improve my gardening skills. So that's my plan, study up, and tackle the garden again early next spring.
