Mixed greens, brussel sprouts, red leaf lettuce, kale, onions, broccoli, and spinach. Yum yum!

We're down to carrots and radishes. Parsnips we wait until Jan or Feb. Cut last cabbage a few days ago. I'm surprised at how few people grow a fall garden. Can't grow warm weather veggies here but there are many things that will grow or at least not die from frost so they wait to be used. Vern

I'm surprised also Vern. Easy to do, at least in my part of the country. Of course my main reason would be more seat time on the Cub! :-)

Culiflower and brussel sprouts doing well. Planted sprouts of both early this spring. Nothing happened due to the heat and drought. Thought they were dead. Surprised me once the cooler damp weather set in. Culiflower are setting nice sized heads and the brussel sprouts are firming up nicely.
I have an excuse. CRS.

With lows in the mid to upper 20s for the next few days, and the neighbor's cattle getting into my lettuce, this is what my garden now looks like.
