Weeding and Planting for the Fall

Written by

We spent this weekend weeding and planting in our fall garden.  The squash I planted four weeks ago looks great and will produce some last minute zuchinnis and patty pan squashes for this year.  We were able to get a large portion of the garden weeded.   We weeded just enough to get a few sore muscles and find space for 2 rows of cabbage and 2 rows of broccoli.  In 2 weeks we will plant both cabbage and broccoli again to stagger our harvest.  I was also able to get 1 lb of garlic planted.  I think I need to purchase another 1 lb and get it in the garden in a couple weeks.  I will let you in on a secret.  We purchased the garlic at the grocery store this year.  It can be very expensive to buy garlic out of the seed catalogs.  It is not near as expensive in the grocery store.  So next year when we harvest, I will let you know how that turns out.  We are taking a weekend break at the yardstead.  The plan is to camp at the beach for a few days.  Maybe by the time we get back in the garden their will be late summer squashes to stir-fry...yummy!
