Early September Garden Update

Here’s a quick update on what’s happening in the garden now that it’s officially September:

  • Recently planted vegetables: turnips, collard greens, mustard greens, lettuce, spinach
  • Vegetables we expect to harvest soon: edamame, more cucumbers
  • Vegetables I have given up on for the year: Peas and radishes (didn’t get around to planting), beets and carrots (didn’t germinate well)
  • Vegetables we’re preserving: tomatoes and hot peppers (freezer)
  • Vegetables we’ve harvested so much of that we’re now picking and eating them daily, plus actively giving them away: eggplant, cherry tomatoes, green beans. Does anyone want any? (Just kidding. And Mom, don’t worry, I’m saving you an eggplant.)

  1. Those chillies look fab! What kind of temps will you get in Kansas now? By the look of all your sowings I suspect high-ish ones? My carrots over here didn’t do all that well germinating, not sure why, especially as I tried both in the ground and individual cell planting.

    • Thanks! It’s been cool for the last day or so (80s), but we’re supposed to be back in the mid-90s in the next couple of days. First frost is totally unpredictable, but historical average is Oct. 15. Where are you located?
