Welcome Fall! Fall is welcome after such a hot summer--particularly since we've still been able to get a few crops in that are thriving (quite honestly, we were able to get in only the barest few since fall planting corresponded with Abigail's birth--and these got in a little late, so we're barely getting ripe crops as the weather is getting colder).
Radishes are beautiful this time of year--not too many vegetables can beat radish for vivid color.
Arugula grows like a weed at our house--it is, in fact, our weed of choice. Considering how much they charge for it at the grocery store or farmer's market, I'd say arugula growing is a well-kept secret. I literally scatter seeds onto raked earth and then rake a little more. Viola! Crop!
The winter lettuce I planted is so beautiful, I just wish I'd planted more of it. This little patch is perfect and healthy (just too little).
Since my nursing daughter is up at night if I eat cruciferous veggies, I'm trying to maximize on these last few days of green beans. We've got a beautiful crop just coming in--I'm trying to let them get just a little longer. . . but I feel like I'm playing chicken with Jack Frost.
