Garden Update - September 2008

We are continuing the transition to winter garden and winter plants. Actually, our butter beans and peppers are still producing. Most of the tomato plants seem to have run their course, aside from two that seem to be doing better than ever. All varieties of pole beans have been cast into the fire (literally) in order to make room for another raised bed.

Maybe there is something to be said about this square foot gardening approach. Look at those greens! Going from left to right, we have cabbage (2), Chinese radishes, carrots (Long Orange Improved, a really old Dutch heritage variety that keeps well), below those, broccoli below those turnips, and one little napa cabbage sprout below all that mass of green.

(There is spinach in there too, but it's behind the MASSIVE bunch of greens. Too bad we're not huge fans of greens. But I'll eat them because I know they're really good for me.)

The pole beans had to be sacrificed in order to make room for our second raised bed. The pup inspects my work to make sure it meets requirements.


Yesterday, Harmony noticed this. It looks like a tomato seedling is growing out of the steel wool.

    Beautiful winter garden! YOU CAN SHARE TURNIP GREENS WITH ME ANYTIME, I DID NOT GROW A WINTER GARDEN.

    I LOVE the tomato seedling in the scrubby. That says something...

    (Don't know what, but I'm sure it does...)
