This year I am determined to be harvesting something from the garden all year long. We rarely ever get a freeze where I live so winters are mild. Our long hot summer kept the garden quiet but at the end of august I planted more seeds to see what would give me a late harvest.
Basil and cucumbers have taken off. I have been picking a few cucumbers per week this month.
I planted some fall crops. Mostly greens and lettuces.
Half the garden is now planted with new seedlings and the other half is left with more mature plants still producing.
Bell peppers seem to finally take off in the fall here.
We love cukes here and even eat them in sandiches. You can see how we enjoy them here.
First year I grew celery and it has taken a while to mature but now I can snip off stalks as I need them.
Those are also the green onions I grew from market cuttings. Worked great. Snipped as needed and haven't bought any all summer.
