I really meant to have a September gardening update but I misplaced my little notebook where I was writing everything down. September was a good gardening month with lots of tomatillos, tomatoes, peppers, various types of greens (lettuce, spinach, chard), and broccoli.
October has been a good month also. The garden is slowly getting cleaned up but we're still getting tomatillos, tomatoes, various types of greens, yellow squash, broccoli, butternut squash, and green beans. It's all been good. I am very thankful that my garden is so productive. I know I haven't talked much about the herbs but they are still going strong too. The herb garden consists of Greek oregano, chives, thyme, rosemary (which has been re-potted and brought inside), cilantro, and sage. The basil has been removed and is hanging to dry.
I love experimenting with the garden. We did replant spinach this fall for spring. This was an excellent experiment from last year which was a pleasant surprise last March to find the spinach growing like crazy.
I suppose the first weekend in November we should hop to it and really get the garden cleaned up. I will be sad to see my greens gone. I really haven't taken advantage of the chard this year. I need more recipes. If you have some good ones, I would love to hear about it.
How does your garden?
Happy Stitching! (or gardening)
