Weekend Garden Chores

You can definitely tell Fall is coming around here. The beds are slowly starting to get cleared out. Squash plants are dying back. The tomatillos are harvested and pulled out. Kale and lettuce are done. That opens up one entire bed for fall planting. The dry beans are done and will also be pulled out this weekend. The bed that had our peas in it is also open.

It’s a bit of a relief because I was worried that we wouldn’t have enough space for our fall crops, but I think we’ll be OK.

This weekend will be all about prepping and planting. As beds get cleared we’ll be putting down rabbit and composted livestock manure to dig in. Then we’ll be planting kohlrabi, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, lettuce, spinach, beets, carrots, and kale.
