I put a tiny bit of my garden, slices of jalapeño, on the stuffed mushrooms I brought to share on our friends' flower bestrewn deck. 🍴🍄🌸 More pics from the lovely evening we spent enjoying someone else's garden and deck are here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/gGx6GE3q57AMPHpx9 *** * * * #jalapeno #gardenstyleliving #thegardenerwife #garden #plants #organic #green #gardens #plant #growyourown #homegrown #gardener #mygarden #foodinspiration #growsomethinggreen #gardenlife #organicgardening #urbangardening #suburbangarden #midwestgarden #vegetables #veggies #growyourownfood #gardenadventures #harvest #gardentotable #farmtotable

Hey, I’m back! I finally replaced my phone that was stolen and can begin posting here again. THANK YOU to everyone who continued to follow me and started following me over the last 3 weeks. I have LOTS of catching up to do! This isn’t what I thought I’d post for my first photo, but it popped up on my FB memories page and I had to share: Seven years ago I was part of a group of master gardeners who visited TRUDI TEMPLE’s farm in Marengo, IL. It was a wonderful experience! I'd already met her a few years earlier when she spoke at my garden club in Palos Heights. Not seeing her garden in Hinsdale is still a big regret of mine. **See the link in my profile for the rest of my photos from that visit. I shared them on Facebook, Google+ and my “Bonus Photos” (Shutterfly) pages. * * * #sustainablefarm #sustainablegarden #garden #plants #organic #green #gardens #plant #growyourown #homegrown #gardener #mygarden #greenthumb #growsomethinggreen #gardenlife #instagardenlovers #instagarden #organicgardening #urbangardening #suburbangarden #midwestgarden #garden_styles #gardenlove   #vegetables #veggies #growyourownfood #gardenadventures #harvest #sustainableliving #gardeninspiration

My least favorite garden chore is clearing out the plants and preparing the beds for winter. Especially when there's still so much blooming. I'll leave the flowers as long possible and those with seed heads stay into the winter as food for the birds 🐦🏵️ . . . . #purpleconeflower #summerflowers #flowersofsummer #flowersaremyfavorite #flowergarden #flowerlover #flowers #changingseasons #fallismyfavorite #falliscoming #goodbyesummer #autumn 🍁 #autumnvibes #birdseeds #mybackyard #mygarden #midwestgarden

First bloom on the #toadlily marks the advent of the cooler season. We have just a few days for the official first day of Fall. There’s something beautiful about a plant that waits for most of the year in the shade, waiting to express its full potential. And when it does, the flowers are small, pointing to the ability to harmonize with its surroundings instead of showing off with large flashy flowers. #fallperennials #latesummerflowers #tricyrtis #tricyrtishirta #shadeperennials #ohiogardening #gardeninginspiration #flowermagic #woodlandgarden #midwestgarden #shadegarden #gardenborder #macroflower

Praying Mantis waiting for a meal. There are plenty of snacks to be had in the garden right now! I've cleared out most of the plants...just flowers, herbs, jalapenos, watermelon and leeks are left. We've had so.much.rain lately so haven't been able to get in the garden to work! ⛈️☔🌧️ . . . . #prayingmantis #gardenpredators #gardenerslife #beneficialinsects #fallgarden #mybackyard #mygarden #midwestgarden #inmygarden #inthegarden #changingseasons #zinnias #flowersaremyfavorite #flowergarden #flowerlover #ilovegardening

When you move, you have to take your plants with you! I didn’t managed to take all of them, the house was sold “as is”, so including landscaping and plants. Well, I planted and propagated lots of plants since last summer, so I took these, plus some old clumps of daylilies, hostas, irises, ugh... it was two full vans and many many full cars #movingtobloomington #hoosiergsrden #midwestgarden perennialgarden
