September Garden. Just Pictures

Yes, September, not October... It's good when there is no time for blogging, isn't it?

Visit to The Old Goat Farm


Clean and crispy October air, blue sky, sun - it was a perfect Saturday for touring the Old Goat Farm belonging to Greg Graves and Gary Waller.
Rain came too, but later.
It was my first visit  there after  last year's Visit to the Old Goat Farm: Winter Garden and Christmas tree.
The garden was something in-between seasons with plenty of bright summery colors and the first subtle signs of fall.



Gabion columns and other rock structures  are one of the signature features of the Farm.
Rocks come from the farm soil itself which is glacier till.
 As Greg says in his  blog, most of the rock is between the size of a potato and a watermelon.
I can relate to his story about using a pickaxe, not a shovel, when digging a hole for a plant.
