Hey - look at that. It's been a month since I last posted anything. Awesome.
I've got some posts lined up - the big one, of course, is that there is the Inside Austin Garden Tour happening on October 17 from 9am - 4pm. It is done in association with the AgriLife Extension Office Master Gardeners Program. Pam Penick (of Digging and Lawn Gone! fame) has her garden on the tour - the "Oh Deer!" garden. I'll share my photos from the pre-tour the bloggers did the other day (though I only managed to make it to one garden and the Extension Office). Of course, the 17th is going to be a busy day because that's also the same day as the Garden Conservancy Tour, AND Dogs Out Loud's biggest fundraiser of the year (which I will be helping out with). In the past I've always skipped the Conservancy tour (not that it's been on the same day as the IAGT, but more because it's more expensive to do that tour), but this year, I'm going to try to convince my mom to go with me, and I know she's going to want to see Christy Ten Eyck's place so we'll probably end up hitting a few gardens from each tour and just paying by the garden ($5 for IAGT, and $7 for Conservancy).
I know I should be posting stuff about my yard, but my yard looks like shit; so we'll just ignore it for a while longer - though it IS time to be planting your fall veggie garden, if you're so inclined. I've got my garlic lined up, and I just spent like $25 on veggie starts at the nursery (though I'm going to wait a few more weeks before planting to let the plants get bigger - see, I learn from my past mistakes of planting plants when they're little only to have them be eaten by bugs)
