plan~ting for fall

It’s hard to believe, but it does indeed seem, it’s time to start thinking about fall.  We’ve past a huge heat wave, we’re harvesting, and enjoying with almost ever meal, tomatoes, basil, eggplant, and zucchini, and as we’re soaking in all that summer is, we can’t help but think, ‘what are we going to harvest this fall?’…and so, with breakfast not yet finished, we begin to plan for fall.

Some crops have finished their stint for the season and those bed we have tilled under to prep them for new vegetables.  The spinach, peas, cauliflower, broccoli, rutabagas, kohlrabi, and some lettuces, are among the vegetables that were good to us this spring and early summer and have now finished up, allowing us space for fall crops.

We have decided to plant some things directly into the beds, mustard mix, lettuce mix, cabbage, and some things we felt we wanted to give a bit more attention to and have planted them into soil blocks from a mix we made.These are seeds for winterbor kale, we also planted into blocks seeds for heads of lettuce, broccoli, pac choi, kohlrabhi, and cabbage.  And into the greenhouse they go  to germinate in the warm days of August, along with the little turkeys who live in the greenhouse right now too!
