  1. That’s really interesting, I’ve never thought much of planting in the Fall, the weather here isn’t always suitable. I do still have squash setting, but other than that it’s all finished. Now I’ll have to look into planting more! Thanks for the interesting post.

    No fall gardening in this part of Canada unless you count growing frost on the pumpkin. I’m planting some hydrangea and getting rid of grass though. Going tp make more flower beds and pea gravel paths. Down with grass!

  3. Sounds wonderful and it’s great that you can do it! The only fall crop that grows here is pumpkins. We get frost in September usually.


    1. Thank you so much.

    I for the first time am embarking on a fall garden. I’ve sown something called winter purslane which intrigues me as I’ve never eaten purslane of any kind but if grows in winter that is a plus already.

    We don’t generally get harsh winters. No frost till the end of October and then maybe only a bit once in a while. However, the lack of light between the end of November and the middle of January seriously inhibits growth.

    It’s very wet where I live but I do plan on trying a fall garden! I’m going to try spinach, swiss chard, bokchoy, carrots, beets and another round of peas πŸ™‚ I just have to wait for my tomatoes to ripen so I can plant!

    1. Excellent choices!


  6. I wish I felt ready to try and plant that much for a fall garden. I’m afraid I’ll manage to screw up the small raised bed we planted for our first attempt at growing our own food. At least you’re giving me hope!
