Summer came and went. Too hot. Too dry. Got some tomatoes, potatoes, jalapenos, and tons of okra. I'm now letting the okra go to seed for next year's crop.

Today I planted fall tomatoes - Early Girl, 50 day variety, Baccicia, 60-day green beans, and quinoa. I hope to get enough quinoa after first frost to mill flour and make some bread or bagles or something. Just a fun experiment, plus quinoa is so colorful and pretty. I planted it in the front bed behind one of the asparagus beds.

Soon I'll plant cauliflour, potatoes, broccoli, carrots and maybe try brussels sprouts again. It doesn't get cold enough for cabbage to "head" so I don't think I'll try that again. Fletcher liked my pickled radishes so I may plant some more of those.
