Gardening, Puttering and Adventure Thread, Sept. 30

Happy Saturday! Well, it's harvest season. The big trucks and big harvest equipment are out and about here in the San Joaquin Valley. And the photo above, from just two weeks ago, is enticing:

Anonymous lurker from northern New Jersey, the Garden State...

Today's harvest of tomatoes ( heirloom varieties) and smaller peppers.

Perfect summer weather for us.

A nice time to enjoy the bounty of the earth . . .


Edible Gardening/Putting Things By


Squash, tomato, eggplant blossoms, lettuce and chard, fig tree taller than the lattice now. Light rain today and overcast welcome in southern Arizona. Nan in AZ

Everything looks wonderful, Nan!


Ah, Nature

I was wondering where hummingbirds sleep and found this sweet little video. Fascinating! Maybe for the garden thread, since they are denizens of the garden.

Miley, okravangelist

It certainly is a charming video. Thanks for sending it in!

Some of those hummingbirds are moving south now . . .






Love scrolling through all the wonderful pictures submitted each week. These are some of the deer that frequent our property, have had a few more than usual, in these pics they are out in our field snacking on some peanuts. The others are those I've captured on a trail cam on a trail on the other side of our property. Anyhow, appreciate all the great photos of those with a green thumb, me not being one of those though.

Best Wishes
Sua Sponte (Professional Lurker)

We appreciate getting the great deer photos, including the night shots!
