Carrots and Blooms

I can't believe it is the week of Thanksgiving and I'm harvesting carrots!  I've read about having carrots in the fall and being able to even winter them in the ground for a while, but have never managed to actually try a fall carrot crop.  Very happy with my harvest.  They are so sweet.  I still have more in the ground and am going to see how long I can keep them in the garden under some straw with the colder weather coming.  I may lose some, but want to test it.

We also still have flowers on the patio.  The sweet potato vines went with our cold weekend, but most everything else is still there.

This container of snap dragons is really doing well.

I was so happy to get blooms on my milkweed plant this summer.
This is the last pod sending out seeds.  

A big weather system is suppose to cross the plains this week.  Our Thanksgiving could be a bit wintry.  Hoping our travels aren't impacted as we have family to see and yummy food to eat.

Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope all is well for you.
