Petunias!  I haven't seen any petunias, pictures of them, or even remembered them for many years.  They are attractive.

Here's a little video about development of better, brand name apples.  I don't know if the info is news to anyone.  I'm glad the information is out there.

It's good to be a minimalist.  That's better than being the opposite.  I am freshly learning my limitations.  Yesterday I mowed a little, planted some more daffodils, picked some collard greens and green tomatoes for my friend.  I brought a load of firewood into the house.  Pruned off some blackberries.  Stopped while planting daffodils because I thought, "If I plant the rest of these, and do the other things I want to do, I will pay for it."  Today I am paying for it :-) but not as much as if I would have continued..  Using ice now, then will hot soak.  I will not do more garden chores this week.

There are still lots of fall garden chores to complete.  The main ones are hauling and spreading leaves, some pruning, and plant the rest of the garlic and Winter onions.

While picking green tomatoes, I found these.  And they were wonderful!  Imagine...  Tomatoes in late October! 

I wonder if I can ripen a few of the green ones, indoors?

The first Brussels Sprouts, ever, that I have grown.  I LOVE Brussels Sprouts!  These did better than I expected, no cabbage worms, and cabbage worms left them alone.  Like collard greens.  I love roasting them and eating hot, or roasting them and putting them into a salad with a mustard vinagrette.

Deer didn't touch the petunias all summer!  Yay!

Thanks, Daniel, for the tip(s). Being the "minimalist" that I am, I'll stick to what I know (very little). Love the photo of your ancestor.

Loam, that photo is another treasure! I like her sunbonnet! My guess is that she made it, as well as her clothes.

Randy, it's very easy to edit photos on computers with current operating systems. I have a laptop with Windows 10.  I uploaded the free photo editing program, "Picasa".  Photos can be cropped, rotated, contrast changed, color refurbished, lightened, darkened, labeled.  I use it a lot.

Here is another garden photo, more or less.  It's unlabeled.  Im guessing - really guessing - this is my great grandmother in her garden with squashes or pumpkins, probably around 1900 to 1910.  The Kodak Brownie camera was introduced in 1900, which is how snapshots were done then.

Yes, Daniel, interesting photo and info. I would have no idea how to refurbish and insert an image into this site.

I have doubts about "gardening being in the DNA", but won't argue.

Loam, it looks like you did a good job of refurbishing that picture.

1964 was a good year; it was the year my twins were born. They turned 54 this year. I'm too young to have children that age. 

Alice had a splendid rose garden, and she obviously took very good care of them. 

Oh! Yes! Gardening is in the DNA!.

So gardening is in your DNA?
