Getting my butt in gear for the rest of the year

Bad news about squash aside- I am getting set up for the cold season veggies.

These two unassuming boxes contain one more raised bed- and a mini greenhouse shelving thing so I can start more things from seeds.

Seeds like these! Also the spinach seeds that I already have.

For new beds you need soil!

Check!

What makes me cackle like a very happy witch is that my local garden center was having a pottery sale…

And I’m a gigantic sucker!

I also got a lemongrass plant which will probably go in the small blue pot.

So what if it’s too cold for tomatoes and zucchini! Means it’s perfect for spinach, lettuce, chard, arugula, and other winter greens! Also I have dozens of carrots still carroting away, and I’ve always heard carrots taste better when they’ve had some time to grow in colder weather.

I’ll have to update my garden layout page soon- but everything will work out.
