For those folks who have not already done so, now is the time to plant for anything that needs to overwinter, like garlic and carrots. It is also time to plant for the fall garden here in the south. Anyone in a cooler climate probably should have done that in August.
This year I am trying turnips along with the garlic and carrots to see how they survive over the winter. I am hoping for a early spring harvest but since this is my first attempt time will tell. For the fall I planted spinach and Swiss chard and I hope to get another crop of eggplant and green peppers along with the greens. I also may get another crop of tomatoes but that would just be crazy.
For those who are wondering yes that is a giant basil plant in the background.
