Our Fall Garden

*** Update on Mama. She is still in the hospital and the dialysis treatments she has had in the hospital have been going well, except for the fact that they wipe her out afterwards. I hope that the side effects will get better when she gets used to having the dialysis. Fingers are crossed that she can come home today. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.

We still have a few veggies growing outside. These squash are almost ready to start picking. It won't be long before we have a frost, maybe 2 or 3 more weeks, so we need to eat them while we can!



This is the fall garden. These plants are the squash from above, turnips and rutabagas.



Okra:



These are Bell peppers grown in pots that I grew from seed earlier in the summer. The good thing about them being in pots, is that I can protect them from frost by moving them inside a building or under a shelter.

I'm glad things are going well for your mom and so sorry that she is having to go through dialysis. I do hope she will start feeling much much better with her treatments!! I'm jealous of your fall garden; how nice it would be to have some fresh squash and fresh okra right now. :o)

Great looking fall veggies!

Know you are glad that the dialysis is working. She will be happy to get home.

Take care of yourself.

Glad to hear your mother is getting along alright so far, and I pray things will continue to improve for her. :) Speaking of frost, we have a freeze warning tonight here in Oklahoma, supposed to get down to 33! Makes you forget how scorching it was all summer. LOL
