I’m a day late for Keeping Fed, but that just proves that it has been one crazy busy month around here at Farmhouse 1820. I usually like to post these on the last Saturday of the month, however Sunday the 1st, it is.
October was all about Brooke’s Garden House. I’ve gone on and on about how my garden house dream has come true, yet I had no idea that it would be such a hit with everyone else. We’ve been flooded with messages and emails from readers, telling us they look forward for Monday’s to watch the latest episode. We’ve even received a few messages telling us that they’re obsessed with watching.
I’m humbled, and grateful, and honored, and all that jazz. I’ve created a page with all episodes and everything Brooke’s Garden House included. If you like to catch up or watch again from the beginning, here ya go!
TOMORROW, Episode 9! AND the REVEAL is next week, and I can’t wait to bring that to you!

Before you put your gardens to bed for the winter, be sure and plant your bulbs. With a little fall effort, you’ll get big spring glory! This year, I planted tulip bulbs for the first time, along with shallots and garlic. All are planted following the same guidelines. If you live where the first hard frost is still a couple weeks away, be sure and get your bulbs in the ground now. I’ve learned so much about planting bulbs from a dear friend of mine, and I’m shared all of her advice and bulb knowledge. Check out the bulb planting how to’s for shallots and for flowering bulbs.
We accomplished a lot in October, and I have several fun and inspiring posts on the calendar for November. Stay tuned because as I mentioned, the reveal is coming up for Brooke’s Garden House, along with some holiday decorating ideas, more quick tips, and lip-smackin’ recipes.
