I love gardening.  When I lived in Seattle, Washington, I had an amazing garden – all year long!  I would go out and extend my awning installation to start gardening in the shade and once I was done I would retract it so my plants could get enough sunlight during the day. I grew Cherry Tomatoes, Green Beans, Zucchini, Peas, and Lettuce.  I loved watering my garden daily and watch as the new plants sprouted up through the surface.  Not to mention how much I enjoyed picking them and serving these home-grown veggies to my guests.

Typically, when one thinks about gardening, he or she doesn’t immediately jump to Fall gardening.  Miracle-Gro is the perfect way for you to Find beauty in the Fall within your garden.  When you visit the site, you can narrow your search on how to do this based on the region in which you live.  Since I live in California, I chose the Western Region.  It talks about how Fall is a great time to enjoy vegetables again and how to add color to your garden with Cool-Season Flowers.

In my garden, I would love to plant Cherry Tomatoes.  On Pinterest, I found a yummy recipe for Marinated Cherry Tomato Salad. Here is the recipe (courtesy of

Marinated Cherry Tomato Salad

4 cups halved cherry tomatoes

1/4 cup vegetable oil

3 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar


1 – In a small bowl or cup measure, mix together oil, apple cider vinegar, herbs, salt, and sugar.
2 – Pour dressing over cherry tomatoes in a serving dish, and gently stir to coat. Chill for at least 2 hours.
3 – Gently stir from bottom to top, coating all tomatoes, before serving.
There are so many ways to beautify your garden and enjoy Fall edibles.  Be sure to check out and “like” the Miracle-Gro Facebook page.  Happy Gardening!
