Can you believe we are at the beginning of Fall? It’s my favorite time of year. That bit of coolness in the air, leaves changing and for the first time I am learning about transitioning a garden from Summer to Fall. I’ve learned so much from our first real garden this year.
One of the things I’ve learned is that when you find a plant that grows well, jot down it’s name and plant it every year. One specific tomato has grown so well for me (last year I grew it in Jurassic Garden and it managed to survive my brown thumb)! Check out which variety did so well for us and see the beginning of our Fall transition!
I’m hoping to wet my Fall feet and grow a few items this autumn. It’s a Fall first for us in the garden and while the plantings will be small, I am excited just the same to see if we can harvest a bit more out of the Raised Bed Ranch. Winter growing will not be on our agenda this year but 2021 may bring me to growing year round. Hopefully!
This book The Backyard Homestead Seasonal Planter has been an inspiration and great help in getting me to stretch my wings and try more things. It holds my hand step by step through the seasons and takes the guess work out of wondering when to start things and when to plant them. For a garden newbie like me, that’s a LOT of help!
Have you ever planted a Fall or Winter garden?
