Fall Planting: Part 1

We're playing catch-up in a lot of areas including our fall planting.  Ideally, we would have already had our fall planting done but Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael interrupted 'our normal' for this time of year.

So, we're in overdrive trying to get the fall planting and clean-up done  …

 rosemary cuttings, spinach, lettuce and kale all waiting to be planted/rooted ...

spinach and kale went in this bed ... 

rosemary cuttings went in this jar …
as soon as they start putting on roots I'll plant them and place them in the greenhouse for the winter …

lettuce went in this half-barrel …

and we pulled these dead fruit trees out of the ground with the help of a neighbor so we could replace them with new ones.

We got a lot accomplished today but we still have several things to get done  … stay tuned!

  1. It is great that you are getting some fall things planted. My garden is winding down, but there are still some things out there to pick, although things are looking worse and worse each day. We still have not had our first frost, although it could come at any time once we get to about October 15. Which we have passed now:).

    I wanted to plant a few fall things, but have not had time to figure that out, yet. I need to enrich the soil, till it, re-configure the compost heaps, tie up the berries, and trim countless bushes and trees. So, in the end, I will do what I can. My husband is having some health issues, so he will help as he can, but can't do as much as he used to right now. I still feel very blessed that those issues are being worked on, and there's hope for the future that he will feel better.

    1. Becky, I hope your husband makes a complete recovery and in the mean time just do what you can and don't feel one bit guilty about not being able to do more! Everyone has seasons like that sooner or later!

  2. Always absolutely inspirational Patsy. I have been so busy with life that I haven't visited for a while, but I am pleased you are all safe following the hurricanes. Mimi xxx

    1. Thank you Mimi, it has been a challenging season for sure!

  3. I have never been successful with rooting rosemary. How do you do it?

    1. Lana, I cut sprigs about 6 inches long, strip the leaves off starting at the bottom about half way up the sprig and place it in water. I set it near a sunny window. I watch it and when it starts putting out roots, I plant it in soil. Hope this helps!

    2. Hmmm...exactly like I do it. Thanks
