Dig This – Prepping For That Fall Garden


Well I hope you are loving August as much as we are.

Not only are we having pleasant summer temperatures, we are actually getting some good soaking rain.

What a perfect time to start in on the fall garden, right?

So Monday I weeded and cleaned up the vegetable garden and boat garden at home, which gives me some space for some fall vegetables.

If you have given up on your squashes because of beetles, now is a good time to plant some seeds for new plants for fall.

Summer or winter squash can be seeded now, or even better, try to find plants.

Other tender vegetables that can be seeded now are bush beans, cucumber and peppers.

If you happen to find any vegetable plants, snatch them up and get them in the ground now for fall crops.

For semi-hardy vegetables, you can seed beets, carrots, leaf lettuce, peas, radish, spinach, Swiss chard and turnips right now.

If you can find plants of Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, seed potatoes and onion plants, they can all be planted now.

Start shopping for your fall vegetables seeds and plants.

Meanwhile, come to the Saturday Market for our goodies. This weather may not last much longer so whatever you do, enjoy it and always…Enjoy the Earth! Diana
