This week, I thought I'd share some of the benefits of planting in the fall as well as give you some ideas about what to plant. Enjoy!

Take one look around and you can see the fall season creeping in. Each day, I walk out of my home to find that a few more leaves on my favorite tree have turned reddish-orange. Around this time of year, people start talking about the autumnal equinox. It occurs on September 23rd this year in the Northern Hemisphere. This is when the sun shines directly on the equator, making day and night equal in duration for a short period of time. The autumnal equinox affects the earth and humans in many ways. Here are a few examples.

I love to see cucumbers, carrots, zucchini, and other vegetables flourishing in my garden this time of year. If you have a vegetable garden (with tomatoes thrown in), you know how much fun it can be to pick your ripe vegetables and take them inside. But, what if your harvest of vegetables starts to take over all of the free counter space in your kitchen? If this sounds familiar, I have some solutions for you.

Be 'Gladiolus': It's August's Birth Flower!

Photo via http://ow.ly/QRdx0

I'm fortunate enough to live near a city park that has the most beautiful collection of red gladioli in the summertime. They grow at one edge of the park along a white picket fence that serves as the perfect backdrop. My grocery store is in the same area, so I make it a point to stop and admire the elegant beauty of those flowers on my way to shop. Seeing the trumpet-like red blooms always reminds me of the corsages we used to create in my family's flower shop when I was a girl. Around homecoming time, high school boys would come in to order wrist corsages featuring red, white, or pink gladioli for their dates. So romantic! Since the gladiolus is the birth flower of August, I thought I'd dedicate this blog to a unique bloom that never goes out of style.

Container gardens are a wonderful option for people who don't have a lot of growing space to work with where they live. I thought I'd use this week's post to take a closer look at how to set up a container garden that you can be proud of. Enjoy!
