Our Fall Garden

Maybe we'll have some success with our first fall vegetable garden because I don't want to abandon the raised bed just yet! Remembering to water every day -- not to mention yesterday's big rain -- has given these new mini-crops a much-needed head start.

It's surprising how easy it has been to start a few rows of mesclun, arugula, and mixed heirloom lettuces, Golden Cross cabbage, garlic chives, Swiss chard, and red carrots. Plus we still have a okra coming in and an amazing crop of basil. Now I wish I knew what to plant, if anything, when it starts to get colder. Any ideas about where we could get some hearty plants and tough seeds for late fall into winter? Is it going to be kale and only kale?
