    Anyone putting in a fall garden? I know most of the northern states really don't have the time for spring/summer and summer/fall gardens.
    My first frost is usually the beginning of November so I've got a little time. Put out some more beans (replacing the beans that have died off due to heat and end of life), broccoli, okra, some early harvest corn, and spinach. Might try to get some other leafy greens out there in the next week.

    I'll be joining you kckndrgn. We should have the first garden beds done the middle of SEP. I hope to be able to get some late summer stuff in. I'll be watching this one for suggestions.

    I'm working on it. I have just recently torn out all of the summer plants except tomatoes (still producing) and lettuce (need to harvest seed). Started tilling and I would like to plant this weekend, but 1. I have duty on Saturday, and 2. A hurricane is supposed to be heading our way.

    God willing, our Fall garden will go in when fall arrives, sometime in mid November. Ugh the heat and dry is oppressive this year.

    Will be trying something new. Hilling up the sweet potato row and covering with plastic. That way we can put them in early next spring. Greens/turnips go in next week. New squash should be starting to produce in a couple weeks with the new plantings of blue lakes and half runners.

    I'm also going to try to get some garlic in this fall/winter. I've tried it before but I planted it in the spring, from my understanding it's best to plant in the fall after the first frost. Is that correct?
