Fall and Winter Veggies

The fall garden at my house consists of broccoli, cabbage, collards, sugar snap peas, and lettuce. Planted some celery, too, still waiting to see what that looks like! :)  I still have arugula, as it reseeds itself pretty well.  Still getting a few tomatoes and peppers, and green beans as I planted a late crop. A spaghetti squash is taking off across the lawn, too, but i'm not sure he'll make it before frost, we'll see.  I am enjoying the seasons here in Dallas, Georgia, and am looking forward to trying my hand at growing herbs INSIDE for a change this winter. Ya'll have a blessed day!  debbie
 
 

Happy Wednesday!

The collards, cabbage and broccoli are gaining on the kale now that the weather has turned a bit.  I think they've grown an inch or two since I last checked two days ago! Exciting! Everyone have a blessed day!  debbie
 
 

fall crops

Well, I am learning! It seems that the row covers help here in the deep south....when trying to grow fall crops of kale, collards, cabbage, broccoli, and other various things....I experimented with not using them versus using them. The sun/heat killed the uncovered seedlings in ONE DAY! And it wasn't even 90 that day. So....i will continue to use row covers for the fall "cool weather" crops....hopefully I will benefit and reap the harvest! Anyone else have any other suggestions/advice for growing cool weather crops in Georgia in the fall, let me know! Everyone have a great day! :) debbie
 
 

We Needed It!

We sure needed the rain we are getting this weekend in Marietta! Making things poke up out of the ground further and green up! My small patch of kale, collards and arugula are looking good!  Fig tree has buds....and the blueberry bushes, too! Can't wait for some sunny weather so i can get back out there in the dirt....in the meantime, hand me that seed catalog again, I might have missed something! Ya'll have a great day!  deb
 
 

What do you have coming up??

Hello, all, I'm just curious what folks in other parts of the country (or even in my own city!) have coming up (if anything), either in the garden/field, greenhouse or on the window sill!  I have collards, kale, and arugula up, as well as Cilantro planted in the fall is shooting upward. I will be planting sugar snap peas this weekend, and who knows what else, maybe some lettuce?   I also have basil under the grow light in the house.  I reworked the strawberry bed, and also saw buds sitting tight on the blueberries. Not to mention all the many, many other things tentatively poking through the earth! Daffodils blooming the past few days, my favorite flower!  So glad to see a little warmer weather here. If you get a minute, comment and tell me what you've got planted, and where you are. Hope everyone has a great weekend!  deb :-)
