Now that August is here there are always two things on my mind…. Veggies…and by birthday. Since my birthday is still a bit away I will enlighten you on my veggie situation around our household.
As my dear friend expressed in her blog post “Checking it out: Sampling a CSA”
CSA’s are awesome and the way to go. Since then, I have in fact contacted a local farm and had high hopes to fulfill my fall and early winter needs with this farm. The sad part about this is the farm never responded. I am still hopeful, there is always the phone J
While I have decided that I am still hopeful that the local farm will come through with my fall veggie needs, I still have been looking into ways to grow fall veggies. I listened to the Martha Stewart morning radio this morning and found that in areas such as mine you are able to plant late produce and still be successful. They explained that you will need to start planning now, so by the middle of august you can plant: items such as lettuce, broccoli, and peas. This is the blog of the lady that was on the morning show: http://awaytogarden.com/. Go and check her out and see what fall produce you can plant.
On that note, I would like to share with you the veggies I do have and the amount of yummy goodness in them! My garden has been very low effort this year and I have already figured out how to have a less effort garden and still produce the same quality. (Straw = no weeds). I have been able to get a ton of zucchini, a handful of peppers, cucumbers and my tomatoes are just now starting to turn.
