It never ceases to amaze me how affected we are by the weather. I love the outdoors but I would be the first to say that on stifling hot day, my garden is mostly neglected. Containers get watered and that’s about it. We all grumble and groan when it’s too hot, or too cold. Myself included. But today…..was picture perfect. Beautiful 80 degree weather with NO humidity! So my thoughts turned to Fall veggies. I have pondered planting cool weather crops for the past couple of years but a combination of weather and life in general have stopped me. Until today! Time to experiment.
The task involved pulling some veggies that were done for the year and turning the soil. It was fun playing in the dirt again!
So, for the 1st time ever I have planted cool weather crops! (It sounds so silly to say “crops” but…..) SO this is what was planted:
It will be fun to see if this experiment works. Nothing like hands on experience to learn something new.
Oops….I took a while to put this post together so I actually planted on Saturday but posted on Sunday.

Ok so…let’s talk tomatoes.
Last year they were a complete bust because Late Blight kicked them to the curb but things are better this year.
Now for the other veggie garden inhabitants…..
