Planning for Fall -- Already

It is hard to believe that in the middle of Summer I'm already trying to get Fall planting organized. I would love to have input from everyone. I have listed below what I have planned so far. Please take a look and let me know if you have any additions or subtractions. You can leave a comment to this Post or email me directly. Pretend it is your garden, what would you plant? If no one wants to eat Kale for example, I'll not waste the space and time. The fall garden is really my favorite. All the root veggies are soooo much sweeter and I don't have to squish so many bugs!!!

The Swiss Chard has unfortunately bit the dust...too many bugs eating on it now. We have been picking a few Heirloom tomatoes, eggplant, butternut squash and spaghetti squash. We should have enough to share soon. The beans are tiny but alot of them. We planted 2 varieties of yard long beans, Gita and Red Noodle. 2 bush bean varieties Burgundy and Isar and 2 pole beans, Fortex (green) and Marvel of Venice (yellow).

Just a reminder, even though these vegetables have never had a spray or dust on them, they do still have dirt and a few passenger bugs. So, please remember to wash your vegetables just before you eat them. I do very little washing to help them last longer.
