Keeping on keeping on

No real updates on my front. I pulled the cacti inside for the time we were out of town (seems like a good thing since my weather app was telling me there was going to be a freeze in Austin while we were gone). By the time I came back, the fall garden had gotten bigger, though it still seems so compact, and it looks like there was some hail maybe? I don't know--the chard and beets seemed a little beaten down. Most of the plants have gone dormant for the winter (like the lantana and wildflowers), but the shrimp plant was still blooming away and the passion vine looks like it's finally thriving without caterpillars eating all the leaves.

The plan for this weekend is to thin and weed the fall garden, take out all the plants in the spring garden and probably replant it with more fall garden stuffs (beets, chard, spinach, and peas come to mind). And I'm sure the husband can't wait to go suck up all the leaves for mulching purposes. :P
