The summer garden is summering. Beans. Armenian cucumbers. Tomatoes. Pumpkins and corn ripening. All that stuff. We eat stuff. We give stuff away. Yay.
But my focus is now on the fall and winter garden. Yay!
Why is the future garden so often more fascinating than the present? I don't know, but I'm going to write about it anyway.
Let's make up a plan:
- 1: Evergreen Hardy White Bunching Onions
- 2: Tom Thumb butterhead lettuce.
- 3: Red Kitten spinach, grown for small salad leaves.
- 4: Russian Hunger Gap kale, grown for small salad leaves. I'm wasting the potential of this kale; its claim to fame is bolting late to produce kale raab. But I've got the seeds, packed for 2015, so I'd better plant them soon or never.
- 5: Guardsman scallions
- 6: Oxheart carrots
- 7: Golden beets
- 8: Fordhook chard, grown for small salad leaves.
- 9: Summer Island scallions
- 10: Tom Thumb butterhead lettuce.
- 11: Soloist hybrid Chinese cabbage
- 12: Red Baron scallions
I like it. We'll see if I actually plant it that way.
