Do you plant a fall vegetable? What will you be planting this year?

Yes I do plant a fall garden. Its the best time to plant in Alabama except for tomatoes and corn. So far I have planted leeks - which I plan to dehydrate for soup, and swiss chard. I put some orange chrystanthemums in the bed, too.

Broccoli, cabbage and brussel sprouts already in the ground in the regular garden and eaten to the ground by bugs. Batch 2 that was planted around each of the trees I just planted are looking good.

Lettuce, spinach and onions are looking good. Garlic and turnips will be going in soon. The chart says I'm too late for beets.

We'll seeeeeeee. I may plant them anyway.

biigblueyes: You can always eat the tops if you get tired of waiting for the roots to get big enough.

No Fall veggie garden for me. Unless I want to grow ice cubes and snow cones.

Default Garden is still busy

My garden is still busy: green beans are about done; late peas have powdery mildew but I'm getting a few; still have beets from first planting; late Swiss chard has suffered from slugs; strawberries and asparagus are preparing for the long sleep; chives are doing their fall thing; shallots and garlic will be feeling their way with new roots; nasturtiums are running amuck; borage thinks growing conditions are just lovely; marigolds are putting forth their best.

You're doing something right if your garden is that happy!

I voted greens because I still hope to get collards and kale in the ground. It's getting a little late here, but hopefully I'll get something. Thing is, I have a little bit to do --- we're moving over the next six days, starting in the morning!

Don't tell us you're getting lazy on us, JennyC?

Moving and planting a garden at the same time could get interesting. You could end up with a row of underwear. . . or your closets could end up smelling garlic.
