The California Garden in September 2017

It's Fall here in Southern California. Wait...is there a Fall season here? Well, yes and no! Yes, because the temperatures do cool down and its time to prepare the garden for your winter plants. No, because we don't usually see Fall colors here in SoCal and the temps do not really go down that much! If you want to skip the details, watch the video below:


Today's episode has an abundance of information starting with the garden tour. We tour our raised bed garden and container gardens as well.

In the next section we show you the plants growing in the California garden this month. This includes the vegetables, like Hyacinth Beans and Ivy gourds, our fruit trees and also our herb garden.
