Autumn Winter Vegetable Gardening
Transitioning into Fall is THE BEST! Maybe it’s that the dog days of Summer are finally over-or maybe the cooler weather gives me a chance to expand my clothing choices(!)-or maybe it’s all the autumn & winter vegetable gardening but with less humidity and bugs. I don’t know…what I can tell you is ILOVEIT!

Even though, my fall weather preparations may start a little later than yours I do get freezes here so need to prepare for winter too – just in a different way. (Side note. We are zone 8b).

And even though summer may be coming to an end that does not mean our gardening will too. Heck. Now maybe I can get my spinach, cabbage and Swiss Chard to finally grow!

I do give you the zone if the vlogger mentions it (and I caught it!). I wouldn’t let that get in the way of learning though.

What have I started for fall planting? I planted some acorn squash seeds in peat pots a week ago or so. Hopefully, one or two will take off for me. I did not buy these seeds. I harvested them from a purchased squash.

I also planted more Swiss Chard as I really love that healthy little green! And <ahem> I have more room now as a caterpillar came in overnight and wiped out my watermelon radishes-more on that in a future post. I’m a little bitter over it.
