Wordless Wednesday: Thanksgiving Garden

We’re hard at work cooking for Thanksgiving over here at Gardenerd HQ. But there’s always time to share the latest eye-candy from the fall garden.

Some beds are just getting started, but others are heading toward a first harvest already. Enjoy this progress report from us, and Happy Thanksgiving!
