After I got the Baker Creek seed catalog in the mail a few weeks ago, I’ve been busy plotting and planning my spring garden. Although I had been counting on adding a second bed in the spring, now I’m wondering if maybe I should add a third. Maybe? Or am I being too ambitious? There’s just so much that I want to grow! And with a square foot garden, it can be difficult to limit yourself to a square or two of each vegetable.
Of course, even as I look forward to spring, my fall garden is still thriving. I’ve been wondering if things will start dying off as the weather gets cooler, but since it’s still in the 50s and 60s most days, that hasn’t started happening yet. The leeks, beets, chard, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage still aren’t doing much. But! We got heads from all of the broccoli and cauliflower plants now. This surprised me because we had two large broccoli and cauliflower plants and the others were much smaller–I didn’t think we’d get anything from them.
