Fall Planting

DSC_0008-1.jpgSummer is drawing to a close. I started out the season with high hopes for the garden. And suffered a number of setbacks with respect to my Achilles and the soil I got for my garden. However, I planted several of the original items. Of the original list the following pretty much failed:

  • Yellow Onion
  • Red Onion
  • Spinach

Of the items that did not fail, my tomatoes were the best. It took a long time for them to come in, but August has been a good month for them.

My Squash and Zucchini were disappointing. Both got hit by some kind of larval infestation. My peppers are starting to actually produce.

The fact that it took so much longer to get veggies out of the ground this year I think has to do with the weather. So it seemed odd to me that I was ready to start my planting for the fall already, since I’d gotten so little out of the garden. At any rate, this week I planted a bunch of good stuff for harvest during the fall months. The items include:

  • Swiss Chard
  • Carrots
  • Collard Greens
  • Beets
  • Spinach
  • Leeks

I’m hoping for a flavorful Fall.
