4th Quarter Moon Waning in Leo

Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, Chiron, Jupiter, Uranus, Mercury Retrograde

Celtic Tree Month of Vine

Autumn Equinox

Rainy and mild

Plants are waning, although the morning glories are blooming nicely. Of course, Spiro Squirrel eats all the blossoms he can reach, that little troublemaker.

The black-eyed Susans and black-eyed Susan vine are still blooming well, too. I think I will plant more black-eyed Susan vine next spring, maybe in different colors.

I think we’ll have to take the Thanksgiving/Christmas cacti in soon; the nights are getting cooler. Pretty soon, we’ll have to figure out where to put the plants that need to be inside all winter, and which plants can stay on the front porch when we close it off for the winter.

I wonder when the tulip bulbs will arrive.

It’s been gray and rainy for days now, but I guess that’s better than snow!

Today is the Autumn Equinox. It only gets darker from here.

How are you winding things up in the garden?

    Picked four cups of basil to make basil gelato. The basil is pretty much on its way out and we expect a really chilly night that might finish it off. I have one indoor plant on the garden widow. That and a small pot of parsley that isn’t doing well. Out cat leaves them alone so that’s all we can grow there. I will have to start my grow light plants soon.

    Hubby picked the last of the tomatoes. This summer was not a good growing season for some reason. Maybe it was just too hot for too long. Squirrels and birds attacked what little produce that grew. Hope next summer is better.
