2012 Fall Garden

Posted by olemike on 09/18/2012

We planted our fall garden last week.  Quite frankly, we were sick and tired of eating so much summer squash, so we decided to rip out the summer beds and get started with our fall garden.  Prior to planting, we refurbished the beds with Nutri-Rich chicken pellets, and Gaia Green Rock Dust.  Rock Dust is a product advocated by John Kohler, a gardener in Sonoma County, Ca. who may be seen in his many U-Tube videos about gardening.  We had never used rock dust before so thought we would give it a try.  The Nutri-Rich Chicken pellets were recommended by a master gardener at the Fair Oaks Horticulture center.

We planted Broccoli, Cabbage, Brussel Sprouts, Tree Kale, Ornamental Kale, Romaine Lettuce, Spinach, and Celery.

We planted all sets – purchased from Green Acres Nursery in Roseville, CA.  With a little luck, we might have fresh broccoli for Thanksgiving dinner.  Wouldn’t that be swell?

    I understand! I’m a little tired of some things as well, but not complaining (yet).
