Fall veggies

August seems to be all about waiting for it to be over; really, not much is happening with the garden.  However, as strange as it seems to be planting the tiny seeds in such hot weather, it is time to sow winter veggies.  I have lettuce sprouting already, and chard and a few spinach plants, and have already reseeded where needed.  Today I put new soil in the wheelbarrow and sowed carrots.  I used the old soil from the barrow to fill in one of the back beds where I plan to sow beets and more chard this evening. In September I will plant broccoli and peas.


  1. I was just talking about veggies with Robby today, wondering how much you need to plant for it to be really worth it, in the sense that you'd have enough to use. What do you think?

  2. I think a pot of lettuce is so worthwhile. Come by and see how I do it.

  3. Forgot to say the reason a pot is enough is because you just cut the outer leaves and the plant keeps growing.
