Normally at this time of year I’m ready to be done with the garden.
Ready to pick the pumpkins and winter squash – then ignore it’s very existence until January when the gardening bug hits me again.
But not this year.
This year I planted more.
I had a few empty places where a crop had finished – so I decided to try some fall plantings of cool weather crops. Things like broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower.
Germination was very spotty. It could have been too hot, or too much rain, or maybe Buddy and I didn’t prepare the soil quite as well as we should have for these much smaller seeds.
Whatever the reason – I figured it was worth the experiment! We already had the seeds and the ground was just sitting there. Anything that grew was a bonus.
Happy, happy, happy day!
I wonder just how long we can stretch this fresh food season?
