I hope everyone is having a great week. We are going to discuss fall decor today. I know, the heat hasn't gone away yet, but we cross the unofficial line into fall after Labor Day. While we finish up our gardens and get ready for fall plantings, make sure to think about what you can save from the garden for decorating. I always like the dried out corn stalks, so I made sure to keep all mine this year. Also, I planted a small patch of cotton this year. I love the look of them when they dry out and have all those puffy balls of cotton poking about the limbs. If you thought ahead this year and planted gourds and pumpkins, you should be coming up on the perfect time to harvest them. You can also dry out some vegetables like okra. Just look around your yard, even some of the wild and unruly plants can offer some interesting decor around your home. We have thick and twisted trumpet vines, so we usually cut them up and use them for our Halloween themes. Trees are another great source to think about. The leaves haven't started changing colors around here, but don't forget to collect them when they do. So let out your creative side and see what you can come up with.
Leave us a comment on what plants you use for fall decor! Have a great rest of the day and we'll see you on Friday for the Recipe of the Week.
