Right now I've got enough lettuce, beans, tomatoes, leeks, basil, and squash to last me another 3 weeks-tops. Nights are projected to be in the mid-40's later this week, with highs in the 70's. My newly planted lettuce seeds are growing quickly in this cooler weather. So are all the remaining cooler crops which I've planted. The change in weather has really slowed the summer crops. By the picture you can get an idea of what I'll be doing this winter in the garden. I've got 10 more squares to plant in the next 2-3 weeks and then I'll be done for the year. After that it's just a matter of protection and minimal watering for the huge winter harvest season. I doubt it will be as cold as it was last winter so I'm really looking forward to all the great things growing right now. I can't wait until is snows so I can go and hang out in the garden-with some of the tastiest things around.
