Lettuce show you what's new!

Lately, it seems like it rains everywhere but at my house. I am beginning to think it might be intentional! We finally did get some rain, but not like surrounding areas got.  At least it filled up our rain barrels...as you know, every drop counts! I am even grateful for the humidity so my garden isn't bone dry every time I check it. I am weary of watering!


As the summer garden starts to wind down, it is time to think about fall planting. Lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard and herbs love the cool fall weather and will really thrive. If you plant these in containers that can be covered or moved under a covered porch during fear of frost, then you may be able to extend your growing season by many weeks if not a few months. I just planted some romaine and spinach. Nothing’s easier or more rewarding to grow than lettuce or spinach since it can be harvested within weeks of planting.


There are even some vegetables that actually do better in the fall. The fall frosts improve the flavor of these vegetables and can even make them sweeter. These vegetables include beets, Brussels sprouts, kale, carrots and parsnips. Cool weather veggies are easy to grow even for the novice gardener making fall a great time to start. We have everything you need to get started. Stop in and see us today!
