Fall gardening

There’s a lot going on in the garden these days. Our turnips are nearly ripe and delicious. We’ll leave most of them in the ground to continue growing and sweetening. If you haven’t tried turnips, you should. Once tasted, they’re unforgettable. Here’s a picture of club President Andrew harvesting a few.

We’re racing to ripen our last fall crop of radishes, beets, lettuce, etc., trying to get them to grow enough before the fall frost sets in. We also need to sow our cover crops before it gets too cold. I’ve just been reading in the newest Mother Earth news about using Austrian winter peas as a cover crop and am excited to try them out.
