Well, it appears that our lovely fall weather has finally arrived.


The cooler days and nights have left me wanting more than ever to get back out into the garden. However, a visit to a local nursery left me puzzled. No plants available?  We need to be planting!  Just in case anyone has told you folks along the Gulf Coast that it’s too late to plant, let me set the record straight.  We have plenty of things to do right now!  Here’s a list of some of the vegetables and herbs that you can be planting right now.
