September in the Garden

(Zone 6a)

Hi all I figured I'd start a new thread for the new month! And since theres not always alot of new blooms this time of year lets get artsy fartsy with our pics and take some of changing foliage and seedheads or whatever is interesting :)


I haven't taken any pics this month yet so somebody else will have to start us off! hahaha.

artsy fartsy? LOL!!

Now we got two threads called SEPTEMBER IN THE GARDEN!

Not complaining, just making a statement while I work on artsy.....

Sacramento, CA(Zone 9a)

here's the link to the one that dalfrye started. might be less confusing to have just one??? Since she is a day ahead of us, her September 1st shows up as our August 31st. It is a nice twist since she is heading into spring.

Well, here ya go SW... I have a feeling there will be lots of September in the garden so I am gonna pop back and forth!

Thanks for posting the link Soils. When I get to dalfyres link, I will post SW's so incase someone is hopping like me!

Heres my grapes from the prairie! I get tons of vines for making wreaths out of these guys. They are however very puny and very sour!

I am planting some domestic blu seeded grapes up by the nursery so hope to have some bunches that will be edible later on. I know nothing about doing grapes other than I whack the ones in the woods back every fall and make the wreaths out of them. These in the pic are wild. They grow in the poor ground so that is probably why they are puny!

Are ya sure you really want him? Someone thinks he might be a copperhead...I am not positive on the ID though! I would like to be sure. I dont handle sssssnaaakes very well. Snacks yeah, but snakes NO WAY! Dont care what breed they are.. to me, they are all nasty! They are eating my frogs and I am not likeing that at all!

(Zone 5a)

Well, we outruled copperhead.. its not the right color.. but timber rattler still seems to be the popular vote. UGH!

Anyway on the brighter side I have worms...well not exactly worms! they are caterpillers blooming in the fall garden!

I dont like spiders and snakes... well the spiders here are not too bad.. most dont do anything but make pretty weebs like that big guy above.. but I have never seen one like this.....

I guess all of them can bite.. but I dont mess with them or the snakes either way.
