  1. You want to know how I can tell you don’t have a three-year-old hanging around?
    Those pots are where you left them!
    I have had a dozen get run over by the mower this summer, after a certain someone ‘cooked dinner’ in them :D

  2. We are in the process of closing down our cottage in Maine over the next week or so. I just took a large stack of pots back to New Hampshire to clean and store in the potting shed. Back in Maine now and harvesting as much as I can as we have frost advisories for the second day in a row.

  3. I’m doing the same. Much of my garden and potted plants are slowly wilting with shorter days of light and cold evenings. :( just need a few more weeks of warm weather to squeak out some Brussels sprouts. Have a great week Claire!

  4. Oh, you are so organized and diligent, you put me to shame. My philosophy is: while the pots may not have washed themselves in the past, that is no reason not to see if they won’t do it this year.

  5. I’ll be doing this in the next couple of weeks, and thanks for reminding me. I hate to see everything wilting on the vine and am trying to harvest a few of my late cherry tomatoes, which are only just now ripening because they have a speck of sun. Soon I’ll be scrapping it all to compost, and planting greens for winter.

    • Hi Betsy, there’s still plenty to do in the garden at this time isn’t there! My tomatoes are on their last flushes too, in fact we just had a handful chucked in some pasta tonight, I’m going to miss fresh tomatoes from the garden !!

  6. Hahaha you had me giggling like a mad girl when you said ‘time to wash the pots’ and I have no idea why :P
    Maybe because I was expecting dishes?
    Who knows but thank you for making my morning!

    • :) It was only when I stood back and saw all the pots nice and clean that I thought of my blog :) Cleaning them is meant to help stop diseases and the like spreading, you want to give your teeny seedlings a good start in life ! Hope you have a super week Choccy !!

  7. Doesn’t it seem we just planted the garden, Claire? I feel like the season went all too quickly. I didn’t really have the garden I expected this year, but I will try again! I need to do the cleaning and organizing that you accomplished this weekend. The pots look so nice and well organized. :-)

  8. How many times I’ve tried to keep similar pots from one year to the next. Max, unfortunately, has other plans for them. As result, I spend a nice Spring day picking up the pieces. And if he cannot get to mine, he raids the neighbor’s yard and brings them back here. Those pieces I pick up as soon as I see them, hopefully before my neighbor does.
