Glorious late summer in the garden!

 

It’s been a lovely end of the season in the Good Cheer Garden! The sunflowers have been magnificent, and the veggies have loved the heat and sun of September (finally!).

 

The late season bok choi, lettuce and salad mix

 

the kale, the carrots,

beets, collards, broccoli, zucchini, cucumber, basil, tomatoes, radishes, arugula, cilantro, winter squash and pumpkins… still lots being harvested!

 

From lettuce to leeks, the fall has been bountiful, but, sigh, the season is waning.

As soon as each bed is harvested, it’s turned over and cover crop planted. Instead of growing a new crop of veggies, we’re now growing our soil for next season.
