This fall, there will be no big garden. That doesn’t mean we won’t have something growing.
This weekend I started tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, cabbage, radishes and cucumbers. We won’t have a lot of veggies but we should be able to have decent salads. Yes, we can buy lettuce and the like in our grocery stores but since I only go to the store every few weeks, sometimes keeping greens ins’t easy . . especially when they’re about halfway gone by the time I buy them.
We debated whether to use the greenhouse . . was it worth the cost of propane to run the heat in the greenhouse but in the end, we decided it was worth it to keep the heat on but we may be re-thinking that come about January. The cost of propane has not come down since the recent hurricanes.
I keep hoping for a cold winter to help with bug control and hopefully get rid of some of the snakes but, on the other hand, it’s a whole lot easier to keep the greenhouse going when we don’t have a lot of winter. But, in the end, it isn’t under my control so I’ll take whatever Mother Nature sends us.
