Someone asked me recently, “so, is anything going on in your garden in the Fall?”. Well, I took a walk outside in the backyard this morning, camera in hand, to find out. And, I remembered why I love fall:
Trying to extend things a little longer I set our new greenhouse right on top of one of the raised beds so the Roma and Yellow Pear tomato could continue to grow inside and hung a nice little Tom Thumb cherry tomato plant to see how long it will produce:
There’s one more reason I love Fall. Trader Joes has all their pumpkin products for sale!
Fall is also a good time to be working in the garden cleaning up, adding compost and planting shrubs, trees, perennials and bulbs. It’s garlic time too! Today, after this great breakfast I’m ready to divide one garlic bulb from last year’s crop and replant each individual clove to have lots more to harvest next July!
You can find a complete garlic growing guide here on the Organic Gardening Magazine site. Enjoy Fall Ya’ll!
