Wordless Wednesday – A Cranking Fall Garden
Winter is coming, but fall is still here. If there’s one message this Wordless Wednesday coveys, it’s that fall gardening is the best growing season in Southern California. If you’re not growing in fall/winter, you’re missing out! Here’s what’s happening in our Test Garden right now. Come see it on December 16th in person!
Kale varieties include Siberian, Lacinato, Red Russian, Scarlet, Vates Blue Curly and Tronchuda Beira.
Kamut brand Khorasan grows over winter for a spring harvest.
Missouri Pink tomatoes are still producing. We’ll ripen them indoors if the weather stays cool.
Parnsips need thinning in order to produce strong roots. We’ll thin them down to one every 3″.
Can you believe we have a second crop of loquats forming on the tree? Those late-summer hot days triggered a ton of fruit-set.
Sugar Snap peas climb the trellis. They grow much better in fall than in spring here.
Two of our three hens are still molting from summer. Will they start laying again before winter? Fingers crossed.
See all this in person!
