Every gardener has one plant that does not perform well for them, no matter how hard they try. We have never had good success with tomatoes; the maintenance just seemed too high.
Earlier this year, we were gifted with a few plants (1st picture), and again, our success was marginal at best. I realized that a part of my problem was that I needed to learn some terminology and then determine what type of plant would suit our garden best. With that done, I cannot tell you how excited I was to see a bounty of tomatoes (2nd pic, though you might not see them) blossoming from a bought plant this fall!
Almost as if the Lord said, "Ok, now you've got this...," we were again gifted with plants (3rd pic). With the learning curve not quite as steep, the thought that tomatoes might become one of my favorite crops is simply hilarious... #gardeninglove#gardeninglife#gardeninggoals#gardeningisfun#urbanfarming#urbangardening#smallspacegardening#growyourown#growyourownfood#faithfulinsmallthings#notmywillbutthine
The weather is cooling down significantly and the days are getting shorter, but the team at @confluencefarm are still harvesting, transplanting, weeding and working hard to get all those fall/winter crops in and out of the field. Of course, they do have a little helper with them! What #crops do you enjoy harvesting in fall/winter?

The best thing about the #Blanketflower is how long of a bloom time it has! These colorful flowers start blooming in early summer and stay around until early fall in shades of orange, red and yellow. Plus, they're great at attracting nectar-seeking butterflies. 🦋 #FlowerFriday
