End of season

What a slacker again I've been in terms of posting to this blog. Life seems to have gotten away from me. We are all done at the market as our veggie selection is just about done. We have two weeks of the CSA left and even their baskets will be thin. My fall plantings did not turn out so great and the veggies that I thought would last into the fall were harvested and sold in the summer. Next summer my potato, winter squash, onion, leek, carrots, turnip, broccoli, cabbage, garlic and pumpkin plantings will be greatly expanded to ensure I can provide veggies well into the fall.

I do still have some arugula, lettuce mix and young radish that are growing quite well and will be ready for cutting this week. The CSA shares will be able to enjoy nice tender greens before the cold fall weather sets in. Even though we have had lots of rain this fall I still like to keep the greens well watered to ensure they grow well.
