Afterwards, I spent some time cleaning-out the "picket fence garden." After a bad bout of powdery mildew, the squash and cucumber plants had stopped producing, so I thought I'd pull them out to make room for the autumn crops.
I've never started crops at this time of year but supposedly, if you get them into the ground now, some veggies will fruit just before the frost--giving you a taste of summer's bounty right when we all could use a dose of it.
I placed an order from Johnny's Select Seeds last week and it has arrived. Hopefully, I can get some of the seeds into the ground and into some trays in time to produce some fruit before the cold of winter. Here's what's on the menu:
- Pickling Cucumbers
- Asian Greens
- Bok Choy
Wish me luck! This is something I've never tried before.
