Eggplant, tomatoes, okra, purple hull peas, apples, cantaloupes and watermelons are still coming in. It’s a great time of year for seasonal eating.
The temperature plummeted this week. From steamy days in the 90’s (“feels like 118” my weather page said), this morning I awoke to 59. And it finally rained, settling the sun-baked dust.
Our fall garden loves the cool weather, and the nice drink of water.
I planted collards, kale, turnip greens, Swiss chard, spinach, turnips, mustard greens, Brussels sprouts, beets, Tokyo Bekana, mizuna, bok choy, komatsuna, tatsoi, Chinese cabbage, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and arugula.
Yesterday I dug under a couple of the sweet potato vines and was pleased to discover nice fat tubers. I’ll probably start digging them in a couple of weeks.
And here comes fall.
