Favorite Fall Prep Time...

This fall is what I call a real  Indian Summer warm sunny days and cool nights. I have been working on garden projects redoing the raspberries and treaking the tayberries.
Making up soil for transplanting, Black Gold (composted seaweed), Peat Moss and existing garden soil. Rototill'd  ready to go.
Late season blooms, deer in the back forty
Four Favorites, H and K Tunstall plate, Sylvac Mr. Pickwick, Medalta Jug and Copper with personality !
Black Gold Time!
 Have a great weekend one and all!     Happy Birthday to my wife Wendy!

  1. What a wonderful post. I have over 30 year old memories of a friend helping rototille my vegetable garden....oh boy - that was "a whole lota shakin goin on! Lovely post and glad you linked!

  2. Man, look at that soil! I'm jealous! And what is a tayberry? I've never heard of them.

    1. The Tayberry is a cross of a raspberry and blackberry the fruit is up to 1.5 inches long grows on a vine easy to grow.

  3. The soil of our garden is just plain tired. The preowners did I don't know what. I could use a bit of your compost. Wow!

  4. Oh, I love that plate, Rob! Gorgeous. You've been busy out in the yard. I need to get busy in mine, too. Raking is on the docket for this weekend.

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  5. Black gold is right-- a phrase my dad is fond of using! Great photos too!

  6. Beautiful looking soil. Lucky you! I'm surprised you have any flowers left with the deer munching. Especially the roses. They are really dining in my yard now.

  7. I'm loving Mr. Pickwick! I think I've been to Vancouver ~ is that where Expo was many moons ago? Also, flew in there for an Alaskan cruise.
    Your flowers are beautiful ~ I can see why (:

  8. Could do with a hardworking man like you around here! Love the fall flower pictures too! Joan

  9. Wow your garden is prepped and ready to go for the next season! I'm way.....behind.

  10. Love your mosaics, especially the second one. Lovely flowers!

  11. Hi Rob,
    Looks like you are good to go for the next planting season. Speaking of planting, one of our ministers is heading to Vancouver Island to live and plant churches! I hope to go and help one summer...looks like a beautiful place to live. I am visiting from A Favorite Thing Saturday and am your newest follower.
