How Does My Garden Grow

Late August. What does your garden look like? Some things have faded, some are still producing, some have yet to fulfill their destiny. And- there's still time to have another round of cool season crops. Let's concentrate on those.
After 7 days- lettuce, radishes, arugula, kale
We can plant lettuces again, arugula, kale, chards, radishes, cilantro, parsley... Think early spring, yes, the same crops can go in now. We, in Connecticut, should have at least 8 wks of growing season left. Given the crazy summer, we might even have more time. It seems like we are a month behind all year long. However, be mindful of shorter periods of light. That will affect plant growth. In any case, we can couple garden clean-up with additional sowing to lead us gently out of the season and into our prep for next year. Stay connected to the earth. It keeps on giving.

Chinese red long beans- great fun!
