Fall is definately here...the leaves are falling and covering the ground. It has rained so much that we have to wait for theleaves to dry out before we can rake them up. Even thought fall is here, it has been mild enough for my tomatoes to keep giving to me! YUMMO

So, what is a "farm girl" to do on days when there is not garden to attend to? I do cross stitch to keep my hands busy, of course!!!! The shoe shopper and the book mark are exchanges I participated in and sent off.... It is very rare that I keep the things that I do but I am starting a Herbs and Spice cross stitch that I am planning on keeping....

I am hoping to get a smallish garden started this year using the Square Foot Gardening Method. I will take you along with me on my journey. I will be posting pictures as I can.
While I am wating for my supplies to arrive, I thought I would share pictures of things I all ready have growing around here. Once I have all this figured out, I will be adding more stuff!!!
