The Next Few Weeks

Most of the fall garden is in. The rest will be planted over the next few weeks. We put up some row covers over the broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and swiss chard to protect the seedlings from flea beetles and baby grasshoppers which are everywhere right now. I'm working on pulling up the last of the summer garden, spreading compost, and as always, pulling weeds my favorite!!

If the weather cooperates we should have some greens and lettuces in a few weeks. The arugula is looking great already.

The sweet potatoes we have dug so far are great. I tried 4 varieties this year. The Beauregard are the type you see in the grocery, orange skin and flesh. The others are Nancy Hall, Porto Rico and White Yams. They are light skin w/whiter flesh but are still sweet.
