Everything has died back now. I have a few lettuces growing, but nothing to "write home about," as they say. Or at least as my mother used to say.
The blueberry bushes are turning pretty colors. Even though they don't need it, I am going to transplant them into larger containers (such as the one under the planted pot below) once they are dormant. Then I am going to put the containers out near my back chain-link fence. We need a bit of a screen there, and I think the berry bushes will get large enough to do.
The boysenberry brambles turned red, and are now shedding their leaves. Just imagine all those primocanes bearing fruit next year!

My son cut one of our overgrown shrubs down to size. The herb garden gets a lot more light.
We have also been putting the lawn (did I say lawn? I mean mud and weed patch) border rocks in place with concrete. It's working out pretty well.
We are also removing junipers from the front yard, which is a story for another day. That and my new Craigslist bargain!
