Fall is on the way

2013-08-23 11.39.35
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve seeded or planted all the fall crops. Everything is doing nicely and we should have some radishes and head lettuce in another week or two. If all goes well, we can look forward to arugula, salad mix, spinach, broccoli, escarole, and those adorable white salad turnips. Cool temperatures will work in our favor as the greens love it nice and cool. The enemy this year has been wet soil. It’s stayed wet most of the season, drying out for only a few days here and there. The goal has been to stay one step ahead of the disease that the wet soil brings. I’ve been successful with many of the crops. With other crops, not so much. Most of the home gardeners out there know exactly what I mean. It’s been a tough season overall, but it’s not over yet. Let’s see what the fall brings.
Right now, the flowers are stunning.  Here are some  bouquets I cut this morning.
