Mid-At: Oct 2013 - How/s Your Fall Garden?

Post  sfg4uKim on 10/5/2013, 9:38 pm

I just got back from my father-in-law's memorial and haven't even been able to see how my garden's getting along.  It WAS doing good when I last saw it 4 days ago . . . and it's been HOT.

This is  my cold frame, first time for just about anything, however got serious with MM.
The sugar peas on each end I removed, I don't think their good for a cold frame.
Broccoli is starting to flourish now that cooler weather prevails.
Carrots are nice above, nothing below, I never thinned them out or they were planted to early.
Kohlrabi seems to do great no matter where in my garden I plant it..(very happy for that)
Swiss chard is being eaten alive my bugs, romaine is coming also now that I have been trimming it..
I am certainly getting a hang on these bugs, never have I seen these before, (I never really looked)
All in all this season has been an experiment, which I have loved.
On a side note, our library is having a program on raised bed gardening next week.
I'm taking all my photo's for my beds and going to try to introduce them to SFG.
Not quite sure on how successful I'll be, it isn't my program si I am not going to pirate it.



Below is one of my beds dedicated to cold crops now, tomatos were removed because of blight, now I can plant my beloved spinach in thos squares.

My snap peas are climbing their trellis pretty quick and turnips are doing well.

My peas are climbing up the trellis and I found a few flowers!  rock on 

I am also growing some carrots, radishes, beets, red fire lettuce, romaine lettuce, and buttercrunch lettuce.

I still have one pepper plant producing along with one cherry tomato plant. All my bean pole plants are done.
