turning over a new leaf

Out with the old in with the new today.

Mum (love ya mum!) and I pulled out the last of the corn, the beans, 1.76m tall lettuce (I didn't really measure it it's as tall as me) a few long forgotten giant and deformed turnip and the beetroot and turned over all the soil. Well we let K do all the hard work with the hoe really but we were there to guide and direct and I assisted on spade and we said goodbye to three rows of summer (nooooo!) and made way for Autumn/ winter. We planted out red spinach, regular spinach, chrysanthymum greens, mustard greens, baby daikon and carrots. It's only a start but I need to ease myself into Autumn planting. Got to eke out the last of the summer veggies, squeeze the last bit of summer out of the garden before I turn my back on my favourite season and start girding myself for winter...

Well done, so much accomplished!

I'm thinking about planting a few Fall veggies here. So, I am taking a note on the spinach. : )

I have thought of you and your gardening SO much this summer as we harvested from the tiny garden Jun and my Mom planted! It is so amazing to me that seeds and chopped up potatoes become LOTS of beans and corn and brocalli and...potatoes! Incredible!!!
