fall crops!

A collard green start in my garden.

I've decided that rather than mourn the passing of summer, I will embrace the impending season change. Today, I enjoyed some almost-end-of-summer heat while planting fall crops. If all goes well, in 60-90 days, I will have:
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • Brussels sprouts
  • collard greens
  • baby bok choy
  • spinach
  • red leaf lettuce
  • carrots
To improve my chances of success, I finally installed a drip line. This should help save the plants from what can otherwise be sporadic watering. If I can keep the bugs and digging squirrels away, we should have a garden full of veggies in a couple of months!
