Tuesday Garden Party - Thinking About Fall

We have finally started to have some summer weather and here I am thinking about our fall garden!

Here's what we're thinking for now...
  • carrots
  • snow peas
  • parsnips
  • broccoli
  • lettuce (towards October)
  • onions
  • potatoes
Any ideas or suggestions?  We're fortunate to have long growing seasons here in San Diego, but I want to make sure I am putting the right things in the garden for the season.

I'm hoping to get the seeds planted this week. Come back next week to see how I did. In the meantime, check out An Oregon Cottage for her weekly Garden Party.

  1. that all sounds great. About the only things I could grow in a fall garden here is cabbage and some greens. :)

  2. I am still waiting to harvest my summer garden!! I think it is great that you are planning ahead for the fall. Looking forward to hearing all about it:)

  3. Sounds like a nice lineup of veggies to me! All work well in SoCal's mild winters :)

  4. Sounds like a great list. I'm like Heather....still waiting for my summer garden but had to start planning for the fall. Some things I've started were some Asian greens like Chinese cabbage and baby bok choy.

  5. Do you like turnips? They are much faster to grow than parsnips and can be used in a lot of soups/stews and even a gratin. Just a thought. ;-)

    Thanks for linking to the TGP!

  6. Radishes cabbage cauliflower and greens (kale mustard swiss chard collards) do very well in my garden. I also planted some broccoli raab, radicchio, arugula and celery this year so we'll see how those go!
