The Canny Gardener

how to be a smart gardener


A haiku


As the autumn leaves fall,

Gently you show your wizened face to me.

Reflecting the year in the light.

Late harvests


Perhaps it is climate change, perhaps it is a surprise gift, and perhaps it is a sign of my increasing gardening skills- I have these lovely tomatoes still growing in their glorious reds and sunny yellows brightening up my garden.  Some salad leaves are still growing along with the nasturtiums.  So here is my lovely late summer, near autumn salad, simply served with a splash of olive oil and served with love- delicious!
