Down on the Farm: Seasonal Changes Coming!
Home & Garden, News

Things are winding down for fall. Or perhaps they’re winding up! If you drive by the hoophouse this week, you’ll notice that it’s pretty empty. Gone are the tomatillos, cucumbers, pole beans, okra, and most of the tomatoes and peppers. What we are doing now is shifting into crops that will winter over in the hoophouse.

This week we planted spinach, lettuce, radishes, carrots, kale, mustard, collards, peas, swiss chard and turnips. Some of these (like the mustard) were planted in the boxes outside and some (most) were planted in the hoophouse. Some of these crops are experiments to see if I can plant them this late and still get something worth harvesting.

I know the lettuce, spinach, radishes and turnips will be harvestable. I’ve done those outside in cold frames before. I’ve not planted the others this late before… but I’ve not had a hoophouse before, either. We’ll see what happens.
