    Default The Fall Garden

    What's left in your garden now that night temperatures have fallen?

    I still have some tomatoes and need to check on beets and carrots. Maybe a few eggplants and kale out there? I've been super busy with company, no time to check.

    DH picked the tomatoes last night. Not sure we'll get any more.

    I still have tomatoes and peppers, plus onions and carrots. I recently planted a second crop of lettuce and peas. I live in a climit that you can garden something most of the year though, so I will have things for awhile yet.

    Temps are in the low 40's at night now. Last of the tomatoes have been picked. Not bad for my first year with a garden though, at least something grew well! Next year I'm doing tomatoes and peppers in that bed.

    I'm like to convince DH that I can plant something on our hill. What grows on a hillside that's edible? anything? having a hard time finding spots that are sunny enough, we have a lot of shade since we have so many oak and maple trees.

    Or what does well with quite a bit of shade? lettuce? I'm such a novice at this stuff! LOL

    I am by no means an expert, but I think viney things like pumpkin, squash, cucumbers, watermellon and such would do well on a hill. Plant them at the top and let them climp down. Lettuce and peas do well in some shade.

    I picked beats and carrots tonight. Still lots left, though they can take some frost. I collected a few blue potatoes as well, an experiment.

    I love shade gardening for flowers and foliage plants but have never tried food crops in shade so unfortunately can't help there.

    I expect to cut back the asparagus tomorrow and clean out the tomato patch.

    Harvested the last of the beets and carrots. Made two new recipes: beets with black currants and Moroccan carrot soup.
