Weekend Photos: How the Garden Grows
October 10, 2009 by Amelia
My fall garden is doing very well, and now I’m once again dealing with an excess of greens. And some of the stars of summer are producing into the fall. I’m still getting jalapeños and other peppers, plus a few tomatoes here and there (Romas and Dr. Carolyns). And the Swiss Chard is as productive as ever. But the fun stuff is all the tender, new plants I sowed in early September.
This bed is mostly arugula, with a little lettuce and basil and dill here and there.
In the foreground, there's lettuce I planted from starts. The middle section is carrots and the back section is beets, both of which have a way to go to reach maturity.
In one bed I scattered many assorted lettuces and mesclun mixes. Now they're perfect for a tender salad.
The chard is still robust. I always have too much.
The Mexican Sour Gherkin vines are also still incredibly productive.
Me in my garden plot!
