Week 22 – Fall Vegetable Garden Plants

It’s not too late to plant more veggies in your garden this year.  There are vegetables you can plant by seed or plants for a Fall crop.  After all this heat and talking about how to get your plants to survive it was nice to have a cooler day to get out in the garden and dig.

Today we harvested French Market Carrots and Red Beans and replaced them with some leafy green stuff.  I like the different varieties of lettuce but I don’t venture much into the other leafy vegetables.  Perhaps I will now that I’ve seen what you can plant for Fall.

Today Julie and Heather sowed some seeds including several different varieties of lettuce and radishes so it’s not too late for a second crop.

Jennifer replaced the carrots with some Bok Choy and Swiss Chard.  In place of the beans I planted up some Endive, Radicchio and Kale.

Spinach is a great plants for planting in pots.  Devora planted up some spinach and after planting, Jim and Joseph fertilized all of our plants with Old Age Grow to make sure they get a good start.  It’s important to keep the plants watered because it’s still hot out there during the day.  The nights are getting cooler though so a great time to plant.

Some of these plants will survive the winter and may come up as a Spring crop.

This week I tried the French Market Carrots.  Very yummy and just the right size.  Plump and fat.  Last week we all took home a cucumber and some Italian Zucchini from the garden in the alley.  All very tasty.

In a couple of weeks we’ll check in and see how our seeds and plants are doing.

So far, so fun!!
