My family and I spent a couple of weeks at a house on a nearby lake. Felt hundreds of miles away, but I was near enough to harvest and tend the garden.
At this time of year, and after years of trying to figure this out, it is time to try and move out the old to make room for the new.
A couple of weeks ago marked the garlic harvest. I pulled them out and planted some carrots. I am hoping to get them pulled by the end of October to get more garlic going.
To me, bald spots in the garden are a good thing. I have beans (the end of them) growing like crazy, tomatoes toppling themselves, potatoes flopping, cukes sprawling and peppers lurching. Finding an empty spot (some bush beans pulled, broccoli done, some greens gone) means putting in some beets, radishes, new beans, carrots, and malabar spinach.
The beauty of the garden is that there is always some spot filled with potential.
