Territorial Seed fall catalog reminds me to think about fall
i got my Territorial Fall Seed catalogue. The good thing about this is it reminds me that fall plantings are due and gives me a chance to sit and ponder what ground cover to use. I need to put in more broccoli as it winters over nicely and provides greens all year long. The Russian red leaf kale also over winters and self sows so I have to check to make sure I have some seedlings and replant them if necessary to a place in the garden easy to get to in the winter.
I'm going to plant fava beans to overwinter also. They usually ripen in very early spring and so provide much needed vegetable while everything else is just been sown. Late Cabbage will overwinter where I am and some cauliflower will be good. The weather right now is really hot and I'm sitting inside, thinking about fall and winter, before I head to the river to cool off. Very sweet counterpoint.
