My garden was bad this year. I started off with the best of intentions, but we all know where that road leads. My tomatoes have had tons of blooms, but only now am I starting to get any fruit, and only a few. With Louis being down with an ACL tear and surgery, he has not been able to patrol the back yard on his own, and the rabbits have made a feast of my strawberries. I had a lot of seeds I meant to get going, but just never got around to it.
But there is hope! Next weekend I will direct sow my organic lettuce seeds. It's a variety of 4 or 5 different lettuces, and they always have great results.
Carrots are also on my fall list. I really love a small, misshapen, organic, heirloom carrot. They are ugly, but full of flavor. I just hope Louis is able to get around more to protect them from varmints!
I think I am a little too late for brocolli and cauliflower, but I will give them a shot and hope for a mild fall and early winter.
How was your garden this year, and what do you have planned for your fall crops?
