Finally -- fall planting

Lately, we have been waiting for just the right conditions to plant our fall garden. Work schedules and rain have interfered, but I am so happy to report that we were finally able to plant a fall crop.

We planted green peas and pea pods, spinach, leeks, broccoli, cauliflower and parsnips ...

turnips, carrots, beets, radishes and lettuce ...

collards, mustard greens, garlic, potatoes and you can see our pumpkin plants that are growing nicely. Will all these things grow and produce before frost? I don't know but I sure hope so. I think it is certainly worth a try. Fall vegetables are really great. We are especially excited about the root vegetables, greens and leeks. Right now it just looks like rows of dirt.

Since we were late in getting things planted, we had to forget about planting some more winter squash, but I think we have enough to keep us busy.
