Saturdays in the Garden: #FlourSackMamaGarden

6 Flares 6 Flares ×

Abundant tomatoes for juicy eating and preserving, convenient lettuces & herbs just outside the kitchen door, our own organic strawberry patch — all enticing reasons to grow our own little organic family garden.

Tomatoes Garden

It’s time for 0ur Saturdays in the Garden series to hibernate for the winter.  While we’ve been harvesting late batches of leaf lettuce and bell peppers along with herbs, most of our garden is ready for a break.  We were disappointed to not achieve success with the late plantings of spinach and winter squash.  Probably got those in the ground about three weeks too late.  If I could remember where I planted them, there may be carrots out there somewhere, and likely a few more potatoes too.  Of course our pumpkins came in early.


If our family can grow some of our own fresh, organic food in a garden, then yours can too!  If you’re interested, we’re entering the perfect season to start planning for next spring and shopping for open pollinated seeds.  Our growing season has been lengthening so much here in the South that I may start some tomatoes and peppers indoors as early as next February.

Next year, we’d like to bring you more perspectives from other gardeners who are teaching about organic and sustainable growing.

If you’re interested in sponsoring all or part of the Saturdays in the Garden series in 2015, email with “Saturdays in the Garden” in the subject line.

    This is so great! We didn’t get to plant much this year and no garden really, but I have plans for next year! I am jealous of southern weather for gardening though.

    This makes me so sad I wasn’t able to plant a garden this year! It’s so important to have fresh, healthy food that you feel proud of. Next year!
