Steve and Kristin have been gardening in this spot for over twenty-five years.
When I went to see their garden, it was the second week of October, but there were still fresh herbs, greens, and even new little plants coming up. Here are Kristin and Steve with their hawthorn tree lit up behind them in a blaze of fall sunshine. Saffron is coming up as if it were spring again, and you can see the tiny, purple and white blossoms of Thai basil.
I invite you to listen to Steve and Kristin talk about their fall garden. They describe their garden as it looks in October, they discuss what the fall garden means to them, and they tell a little bit about the plot. Click on the players to hear these reflections. If you like, scroll down and look at some pictures of the garden, taken in October.
