Plant a Fall Crop in a Garden
Last weekend, we planted a bed of garlic as well as three different onion varieties along side some greens. It is a good idea to cover the crops with hay this time of year to trap moisture and heat. Looking forward to getting our potatoes in the ground by months end. YUM!
When the leaves start falling and the nights get cool, most people do not think about gardening. In fact, most people are just trying to get their garden in shape from the end of the summer harvest. Dead plants have to be pulled and all the bits of vegetables left over are collected. However, with the cooler weather, a new batch of plants like garlic, onions, lettuce, spinach, carrots, radishes, parsnips, parsley, or Swiss chard can be set out that will last for the rest of the fall and into the winter.
