The fall crops—those planted in late summer—continue to put food on the table, even as I’ve begun to see cars with bundled trees strapped to the roof. This weekend, I did a little clean-up in both my garden and the Plot Against Hunger garden on 10th and Barton.
The Plot garden yielded a bok choi and some spinach for AFAC and I added some radishes from my garden. My garden also had bok choi, along with chard, cutting celery and parsley.
I did some hoe work and weeding in both gardens. It was nice to be outside and with a few other gardeners who were cleaning up and putting their gardens to bed.
While some people in my community garden plant crops for the winter, many don’t. I had such luck last year with salad greens that I couldn’t imagine not trying to replicate it. Of course, it all depends on the weather.
