Looking Forward to Fall

End of season garden

This growing season is coming to a close and I couldn't be happier. Instead of getting our seeds from Johnny's Selected Seeds Co. I bought them at the hardware store and have had difficulty all season long. Our hot peppers are still going strong as well as our tomatoes, strawberries and eggplants. Even our beans have pods on them! However, many seeds never germinated and some began to grow but never matured.

Next up: cool weather crops for fall harvest!!! So far I've decided to plant brussels sprouts, broccoli (green and purple), kale, fennel, snow peas, cauliflower and spinach. I hope there is time for another planting of cucumbers. Our current plants have both powdery and downy mildew.
