I’m trying something new. A fall garden.
I thought this was a crazy idea until I heard my mom mention planting lettuce two or three weeks ago.
My summer garden did okay this year. We had critters that kept eating the vegetables, and I had very few squash plants grow (what I did have was eaten by critters.) My cucumbers did great. My tomatoes were fairly good. Beans and peas just didn’t happen for us this year. Basil and oregano was fantastic.
I researched what plants would do okay in my area. I ended up buying seeds for lettuce, spinach and snap peas. Any more than that and I think I’d be pushing my luck.
I weeded the garden tonight, ripping up all dead plants, and planting the new seeds.
I’m hoping we can have some fresh-from-the-garden vegetables in a couple of weeks and through October.
Fellow gardeners….have you ever tried a fall garden?
