fall planting

I planted my fall garden in one of the raised beds Jake made for me in the spring. I bought hoops for it for when the weather turns cooler. I installed them and put summer-weight fabric on it. I figure it’ll keep the birds and chipmunks from stealing the seeds. I will put a heavier fabric on whenever it cools off.

I put in bunching onions, mesclun, carrots, spinach, beets, swiss chard, radishes and beans. Some of these things I’ve planted in the fall before, but some are new. I just keep trying stuff to see what works. I’m hoping to be harvesting well into November this year–that would be awesome.
