Fall Garden Planting

It is time to get the fall garden into the ground. Since my summer garden, I have added 5 new raised beds. Four of the beds are 4x4 foot and the other is a 2x12 foot bed.

For the fall garden I am planting:
  • Potatoes that grew in my pantry (might as well try them out)
  • Radishes
  • Lettuce
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Broccoli
  • Sweet Peas
  • Peas
  • Cabbage

Because I used 4x4 raised beds in my garden, I can easily cover them when the frost hits. The idea for the garden beds is to use clear plastic to make mini-greenhouses. This will extend my fall garden season, at least that is the goal.

Fall Garden Raised Beds

My planting style, right or wrong, is to put two to three seeds in every divot. This way if one of those seeds doesn't take I still get a plant. To me it is better to trim back plants than not have them grow. So far I have a few sprouts coming up in the garden.
