Impressive, Bertold. Mine doesn't even have buds yet, though the Thanksgiving cactus has small closed buds.

I just turned-off my outdoor water and drained it because there will be freezing weather the next 2 days.

I won't have to use it until spring because the rainy season started 2 months ago and there's been more rain than normal.

Nice big plant Bertold.  I don't know how big they get outdoors.  My mother had one indoors, in a pot, so it never became large.

Christmas cactus kicking in.

Congratulations on the acquisition of lots of brown gold Daniel.

Despite frequent crop failures, we know the old adage of "nothing ventured, nothing gained". I don't get overly discouraged. And living through winter isn't so bad, either. It gives me (and garden) a chance to rest and re-invigorate. Same is true with my golfing. A break in the action is a good thing.

Don, I am sorry to learn of your apple tree going down. Those late autumn snow storms take down a lot of strong trees. I've lost several, i.e. Washington Hawthorn and an apple.

Don, Daniel, and Randy, your crops and trees sound especially delightful now, as the weather makes its change from autumn into winter temperatures. I have Concord grape juice, about 20 quarts, in my freezer and given to family and friends. I went hunting for some parsley  a few days ago and found nothing good enough to eat. My dried parsley taste fresh in cups of chicken stock. 

The neighbors all have put their gardens to bed and shared from their abundance with me. 

I have a little herb garden in my dining room window that looks healthy and lush. I use them as fast as they grow. I'll get some new starts going so that I can have more.

Getting the garden settled in for the winter: rototilled about half and spread pine needles over it. It needs to be acidified annually.
I'm still harvesting tomatoes and carrots. New kale and collard leaves are coming out after caterpillars devoured the plants.
I'd give my garden a C grade for the year. Many things didn't germinate--beets, parsnips, spinach--and others just didn't produce, like cauliflower. I'm a little disappointed with Brussels sprouts, too.

Oh well. Like the typical farmer, "wait'l next year".

Ouch, Don. I know the feeling. My cherry tree split a few years back. I've never planted another one because I hated pitting the fruit.
