Well the pumpkins didn’t miss me while I was away, they just kept on growing.
No pumpkins on the Fairy tale pumpkins plants….. I guess I will have to pick a better spot next year.
We, I should say my husband, got the raised bed ready for the fall season. After cleaning out the summer crops, he added some peat moss and some well rotted manure. Stirred it all up, watered it real well and planted 3 kinds of lettuce, Red sails, Little Gem and Black Seeded Simpson. At the other end he planted a bed of spinach. He is still going to plant more spinach in another bed, but that was enough for one day, since the manure is up on the hill and has to be carried down in 5 gallon buckets.
We will cover them with hoops and plastic when it starts to get colder, to help make them last longer into the winter.
Have a great weekend everybody! Are you planting a winter garden?? If so, what is your favorite winter crop?
