Round One of The Fall Garden Is Planted!

I've been working hard this week, in and around the heat and humidity, to get round one of our fall garden planted.

Cabbage, broccoli, carrots, collards, brussels sprouts and beets went in raised beds or containers.

We covered the raised beds with netting and secured it down with what we had on hand, bricks, chunks of wood and smaller pots to keep critters from digging in the beds.  The goal for our fall garden is to have fresh veggies to eat during the fall and winter months as far into the seasons as we can.

Round two of planting our fall garden will come in early September.  Things like lettuce, spinach, radishes, etc will make up round two.  Those type of things typically do well here until sometime in December (depending on the weather, of course).

Round three of planting our fall garden will have us getting things moved into or started in the greenhouse.  We hope to be able to grow tomatoes, cucumbers, more lettuce, spinach and radishes throughout the winter.  If all goes well this will get us into early spring when we'll start planting the spring garden and a new year of gardening will begin.

A Working Pantry is a way of life, a lifestyle if you will!

My pantry is intentional, purposeful, simple, practical, frugal and what works for my family.  It’s the food items and household supplies that keep my household running smoothly ready and available when they are needed.  It’s my contribution to our family’s economy and my work-from-home ‘job.'

  1. Looks great! You are smart to cover those beds. Our squirrels love a freshly planted anything.

    1. Lana, we've got some that do too! They can destroy a garden before it even comes up!

  2. Miss Busy shall be your name from now on. We can grow a year round garden here. It means there is constant work and the garden needs to be well fed on compost, but it is so worth it. Hope the critters leave the gardens alone.

    1. Jane, I like to garden, and I like to stay busy, so it works to my advantage! I hope the critters leave my gardens alone too, I'm not planting for them!!!
