What? I was just talking yesterday about the abundance if the summer garden. Whats this about winter?
The reality is that this time of summer, I have to start thinking about the fall garden. Its the time I start having to think about when we usually get a killing frost (end of September) and counting backwards from then to know how much time I have to get fall veggies in the ground. Frost is only about 9 weeks away! Hard to believe I know, but there it is. I have a bit over 60 days of growing time left. Blink, and winter , or certainly fall weather, will be here.
So, as summer crops start fading , fall amd winter crops will take their place.
|The garlic is all pulled, and is curing on these wire shelves in the garden shed. This is where the geese sleep. Lets hope they are not fond of garlic.|
|Where the garlic came out, fall crops go in. Here I have planted carrots, beets, and turnips.|
|I can still enjoy the flowers starting to bloom along the front walkway. My budget for this garden was small this year, and I only tossed some packages of seeds out. They are just beginning to show their colors.|
