Fall Beginnings & Summer Harvest
The first day of fall already? Well, the temps are regularly dropping into the 50’s every night and the fog has settled over the prairies.
Although these fall days don’t have the vibrancy of fall in New England, Oklahoma has its own kind of fall flare and beauty. I am just beginning to see the change in the foliage.
The garden will continue to produce until the first frost, so we still have 6 weeks or so of bountiful harvest. I have so enjoyed this year’s garden. I have learned a lot about over fertilizing, over watering, and over planting. My notes for next year will be so helpful. If you haven’t tried using a journal to track your garden, I highly recommend.
The kale and jalapeños were a success. But the tomatoes went back and forth–first not enough fertilizer, then too much. Then too hot, then over watered. The broccoli never produced their heads due to the heat and the watermelons were too late in the game.
