This summer was very hard on my garden. It was HOT! For a few weeks we had NO rain and then it rained for an entire week.
The morning temperature has been wonderful with a slight breeze and even after being outside for an hour after lunch I didn't feel like I was going to pass out.
For some strange reason I have been more plant-motivated this month. Does that even make sense?
On Saturday I planted:
Table Queen Bush Squash
Bloomsdale Longstanding Spinach
Detroit Dark Red Beets
5 Color Silverbeet Swiss Chard
And already I have little sprouting seeds!
I have run out of seedling pots (all recycled) so last night I had to purchase a few Jiffy Pots for the rest of my Fall planting.
This morning I planted:
Fine Verde Basil
But that's not all...Tomorrow I intend to plant more. Soaking in little shot glasses on my kitchen table are Habanero and Pimiento Peppers, Brussels Sprouts and Little Gem Lettuce seeds.
Have I lost my mind? Gone over the edge? I'm not sure but I'll be really happy when I don't have to keep going to the store for salad stuff. Even with the weekly trips to the farmer's market I find myself running to the grocery store for items I have run out of or forgot to pick up on Sunday.
Are you planning a Fall Garden? Have you already started?
