Mr. Booker's FALL garden. 2018

Post  MrBooker on 8/18/2018, 9:04 am

Starting my Fall garden. Today I'll top my beds off with compost and plant my Fall Carrots and Beets in one of my hoop houses.
Here is a pic of my Turnip beds I started on 08/02 and planted more on the 11th.



Ten Cabbage plants in the flat. Golden Zuke in the fore ground.


Salad Pots:





Four of my Chinese Cabbage didn't germinate. Had to replant them.


Japanese Giant Red Mustard greens.  (Garden candy)


 These green Onions were left over from spring planting and sat on the back porch all summer. I usually put them in the crisper drawer for fall planting but forgot them. I'm surprised they came up. I love my green onions in the fall.
(Looks like it's time for a little weed eating)



Garlic Chives going to seed.


Six store bought Cabbage and six Cauliflower plants. "Just in case"


Bell Peppers gone crazy.

Beautiful! I love you I am soooo jealous! We still can't breathe the air, and gardening with a mask is no fun at all. There's no place to start seeds inside this new house, so my fall garden will be delayed for another few weeks. Also, Bob would have a fit if I started gardening before all the boxes are unpacked, and I still have a long way to go on that front. Embarassed

You tell Bob I said, Leave you alone cause you got GARDENING to do. Bob will get over it when you fix him a fresh salad from your garden.. Now, Git'er Done.

LOL! Actually, it's a self-imposed rule. If I didn't make myself do my chores before gardening, I'd never do anything else. Embarassed

Thanks A.M.  I put a thick layer of compost on my two 4x8 beds yesterday and got my fall Carrots, Beets, Cabbage and Cauliflower planted. Had to put the cage back on the beds to keep the cats out.

Beautiful peppers...anhd everything else!  So, you can plant a zuke plant and carrot seeds and have them come to fruition before it's too cold?

Yes, I have hoops over two of my 4x8 beds and when it gets cold, I will put the plastic over them after I put down about a foot of straw mulch. Somewhere on this forum, I posted a video of me pulling carrots in January, 2016 (maybe 2017)  with the temps way below freezing.

I have a west-facing room behind an extra carport, next to the garage. It has a huge sliding door out to the back of the property, which we don't use. Would that work to set up a shelving unit in front of it, with grow lights and heating pads for winter gardening?

Our Brussels Sprouts are going back into production now that it is starting to cool down. During the hot July and August days they quit producing little sprouts and tried sending up flower stalks that I had to keep breaking off. Now I am seeing little sprouts forming between the top leave stems.  Looking forward to some more fresh Brussels Sprouts boiled with bacon.....   Smile

Nice garden, Mr. B!  I didn’t have room for any Japanese Red Mustard in my Fall garden, and I think I put it in too late this past spring.  Next year, right?

I only had room to plant one of my Red Mustards in a half barrel last week. The rest of my pots and containers are still doing too good to remove any plants.

If the half barrels keep going into the fall, it will be too late to plant anything else in them. I'm not complaining though..

Choices!  Yes, lots of my things are still going strong; we had a lot of rain here this summer, maybe that prolonged things?  I liked the red mustard, it is spicy, which I apppreciate!  How do you use yours?

I use mine as garden candy, maybe a few leaves on a burger or chop it up in salads. It is really spicy.

Gotcha!  Mine was getting tiny tiny holes in it towards the time I pulled it...not sure?
