November Evening Garden Walk

November is a wonderful time for gardening in north Florida. The light in the mornings and evenings is so beautiful it takes your breath away. Here are a few shots from the gardens at Cowlick Cottage Farm this evening. I hope you enjoy them!


Cleyera adds fall color to the new border garden.

Mustard, arugula, chard, mizuna, bok choy and other nutritious greens will be in our soup bowls tonight, along with shrimp, garlic, onion and broth.

I absolutely love the new native grasses we planted in the beds this fall.

This is Mexican Tarragon in full bloom. It is huge and feeds the butterflies. I use it to make our favorite roast chicken with tarragon cream sauce.

This is one of my favorite winter beds. It is a blend of Asian greens that I raise from organic seed. Extremely easy to grow and very nutritious, it will feed us all winter. You can grow these greens in partial shade!

This cigarette plant, or cuphea ignea, is ignited by the evening sun.

The new variety of Wave pansies adds a quaint element of cheer to the fall garden.
