We got started on our fall garden this weekend! I started with this:
And a bunch of newspapers. I used the newspaper to make little pots in which to plant the seeds. And here they are!
I started with the peas and 1/3 of the lettuce. I'll plant the at intervals so that (hopefully) we'll have lettuce to harvest throughout the fall.
I'll be planting carrots, onions and broccoli next month. That should give us some nice fall/winter veggies. In theory. ;-)
We also bought our tulip and daffodil bulbs to plant in the front beds for next spring. They are so pretty, I'm not sure I can wait until spring to see them!
The Mr and I have been talking about making our garden bigger. Maybe even building a greenhouse type structure to take advantage of some of the unused space in the yard. That way we can grow more - maybe bell peppers, squash, more strawberries, carrots and potatoes next year? Even some melons and pumpkins? We'll have to see - but planning it certainly is something to get excited about!
Though I've started the fall garden, we've still got plenty of summer left here in San Diego. Next week I hope to have some more veggies to harvest - come on back to see what we've got. In the meantime, check out An Oregon Cottage for her weekly Garden Party.
