Several of them are in the front yard, one on the side yard, and eight in the back yard. What are these subversive plots!

Here are several of them in full summer glory…

    I’ve been writing fiction and thought you might be too. Friends in Vermont are doing permaculture gardens, growing the usual squash and root veg but also branching out, literally with nut and fruit trees. Some are growing hearty kiwi fruit and one friend had her first harvest of Vermont rice.

    Nothing like home grown food>

    Hi Carol,

    So nice to see you on the CCR blog today! I was hoping that the title would catch a few literary types, and I am so glad that you found it as well. I planted two plum trees two years ago, and put in two fig trees this year, so far no fruit yet, but my hopes are that next spring will be better. I want to add a few apple trees as well for my next “orchard”.

    Bon appétit!

    Hey Drick,
    Very true! And I was not even thinking of the Halloween theme! However, I will be turning the big Five-0 on that day this year!

    Love the pun in the title–up in Alaska we can only dream of gardens that look that good this time of year.
