Garden Gleanings - It must be timePosted Sunday, September 21, 2008, at 6:37 PM
It must be time to do some serious weeding on the second set of garden beds. When your better half makes a comment about it being time to weed-eat the garden, there is not much doubt.
There is only a gourd and a tomato plant hanging on that side, but the comment is enough, it is time to weed.
The radishes are running strong as expected, the beets are slow to barely doing anything, but it is two year old seed. The carrots are expected to be slow and the bok-choy is OK but not great.
The corn is tasseling but the lack of rain has it shorter than normal. Unless I am willing to water it every other day, it will probably not do well. I would not count on getting any corn from us this fall.
Anyone else have a fall garden going?
