Fall Gardening

August 5, 2009

Tenderette Snap Beans

Have you started your fall garden yet? I know it is difficult some years to plant for fall when the summer crops are still producing, but as each of them completes its life cycle and is cleared away, another crop can be planted in its place. Just remember about crop rotation. With all this in mind, I planted a second crop of snap beans at the beginning of July and that crop is now moving toward producing more beans. The small raised bed in the back yard where I had planted carrots this spring is now home to a third planting of snap beans. These last two plantings have been of the tenderette variety.

Some time in the next week or so I’ll plant a couple of varieties of kale, followed by spinach, lettuces and other cool weather vegetables. I feel very blessed to be in an area where I can truly garden almost year round!
