Day 227–Planting a Fall Garden

Although it is still hot and humid here, we have visions of fall veggies growing in the garden. As much as I hate to see summer go, I do love me some fall vegetables. Broccoli, beets, sweet potatoes, autumn squash, pumpkin, kale, collards…yum!

Our summer garden was miraculously unproductive. Someone picked all our tomatoes and eggplants before we could get to them, and our cucumber plants bit the dust early (although we did get a decent number of cucumbers before that happened). Our herbs fared better than the vegetables, so that may be the way to go in the future. Because apparently, my neighbors don’t like herbs 🙂

The urge to plant things is apparently greater than the urge to give up until I have new neighbors, so I’m planning on giving over some energy to a fall garden. And maybe installing a video camera.

What about you? What do you like to plant in the fall?

  1. I am so baffled that someone picked your vegetables. That is so weird! Way more invasive than uninvited dock fishers. Unless a racoon is the culprit that is waaaaaay outta line. We have humongo tomato plants that we got in the ground late and they were just starting to really yield great big meaty tomatoes and then some freaky gale force winds blew them over. I still don’t know if they will recover. I do have an obscene amount of peppers, though 🙂 No idea what to plant for fall. Broccoli sounds fun but intimidates the heck outta me.

    • I considered raccoons, but we’ve never found even a speck of tomato on the ground. Usually our raccoons take a big bite and leave the rest for us to lament over. Maybe they’ve developed pockets…

  2. Someone picked your garden!? If only scarecrows could move!!!
    Best of luck with your fall garden – I would not try creating a summer garden but have purple thumbs 😛
