Especially if you're going to order any fancy garlic, it's a good idea to start thinking about your fall gardening now.
Today, I'm ordering two cloves of Chesnok Red Garlic and DeCicco Broccoli. The garlic, which I'm going to pair with a generic supermarket (softneck) variety as an experiment, won't be harvested until Spring. But the broccoli will be a part of our fall harvest.... And maybe the winter, if we're lucky. I've never grown broccoli, but I chose Decicco because it's supposed to have a good number of off-shoot broccolis after the large head is harvested.
I was also extremely tempted by German Extra Hardy Garlic, Russian Giant Garlic, Rainbow Swiss Chard, Dragon Carrots, Brussels Sprouts, and leeks... But I have to keep in mind that I have a limited amount of space and plenty of other stuff I already plan on growing.
Meanwhile, today is a nice, mild, overcast day. It rained all morning, so the kitty and I slept in quite nicely. And I'm developing clever ideas about creating my own bagged and frozen convenience stir fry for nights when I don't feel like doing much cooking, so I think it's time to make a trip to the store and browse the produce section for good, freezable veggies.
