This is the first time I have seriously tried to have a Fall garden & I'm quite pleased with it considering it has had quite a bit of neglect. Fortunately no weeding had to be done with Mel's Mix & I watered my seedlings as best I could. The only thing I had that didn't sprout was a second planting of Brussell sprouts, they evidently didn't have enough water.
The rutabaga's grew much faster than the others - the seeds were all planted at the same time, except the cauliflower. The parsnips have been the slowest.
This has been mainly my seed bed. On the left is my last cucumber crop, on the right is delicata squash, underneath are some Romaine lettuce transplants & leek seedlings. I used cattle panel fencing over the pipe to make a trellis for the vines & made a good shade panel too. Then powdery mildew & aphids attacked & the vines are about dead.
We Grow Garlic.
A great site where you can buy garlic by the bulb, not the pound. I was able to try several different kinds:
Italian mountain red
All in all it has been a wonderful gardening season and I wish I had tried square foot gardening years ago. Several things I will do differently next year regarding plant spacing. I didn't realize how huge things would grow.
I hope everyone else has had a successful gardening season.
