Just wanted to share something other than the building project, for a change! The fall garden is doing pretty well, considering the weather. We had planned to plant minimally for the fall, given the continuing drought. As usual, we've fallen prey to all those pretty transplants at the feed store, and ended up filling the majority of the old garden section.
The front half is filled with onions; red, white, and lots of 1015Y - so that really doesn't count. Onions are such easy keepers. The herbs are continuing to grow like gangbusters, seemingly untouched by any cold spells we've had and not asking for too much water. The rest has been planted in varying stages of arugula, lettuces, broccoli, red and green cabbage, and cauliflower. Big John and I are enjoying fresh salads, and I'll start selling salad mix this week. The broccoli - when we can get to it before it flowers - has been delicious. The unseasonably warm weather has it blooming like a flower, which keeps the bees busy and happy! Our new favorite broccoli "recipe" is to toss it in olive oil, salt and pepper, then roast in a 400 degree oven! Yum!
Hope you're getting some fresh fall vegetables as well!
