It is hard to believe that fall is just a week away. Have you planned your fall garden yet? Are you ahead of the game and have it already planted? I am still in the planning stages. Fall is the best time of the year for us to garden. Our spring is notoriously short and planting our perennials in the fall allows them to get established earlier than spring plantings therefore making them stronger when our spring only lasts about 15 minutes. ( ok, that is an exaggeration, it sometimes lasts for 25).
I am planting a lot of perennials that I had grown from seed earlier this year, and I am actually planning to set some seeds for fall crops like broccoli,
and bok choi. I love to grow the rainbow swiss chard and Nero De Toscana Kale for the fall too.
so that there will be color and life bordering my entryway. I am not organized enough to plan out a formal fall garden, I really just don't want to go through winter with everything leading up to my doors dormant and empty looking.
I will let you know how it goes, rest assured it won't be like this....
As beautiful as it is, that is much too organized for me.
