The Fall garden I planted is now up and growing. Slowly. Our weather has been fairly mild with a few really cold days thrown in. We’ve even had a couple of frosts and the weatherman is speaking of snow flurries tomorrow. My feelings about that are to ignore him totally, because I don’t want to get my hopes up.
You may remember the empty pots of dirt I showed you. They really weren’t empty. See.
This is arugula.
A lettuce mixture.
Another lettuce mixture.
My romeo carrots have grown quite a bit.
I am so excited, because for the first time I have …
Carrots!! I love these baby carrots, aren’t they cute?
I have been covering the pots with frost cloth whenever I hear the weather may dip below freezing. So far, it is working.
I also planted swiss chard, beets and radishes. They have sprouted but aren’t growing very much. I’m not covering them with the frost cloth. I am afraid they are on their own.
My garlic has sprouted also.
My poor little Porter cherry tomatoes are hanging in there.
So I have had a few more tomatoes. But don’t get too excited. only a few
I am amazed they are still alive, much less producing. Porter tomatoes were originally introduced to grow in the heat of Texas. I haven’t been covering them with the frost cloth either, so they really are hardy.
Now if my lettuce would hurry up before my tomatoes are all gone, I might have a salad.
