Last winter and spring we spent so much time building raised garden beds and getting our garden set up, and then we had a dismal growing season due to garden pests. After doing a home soil test and confirming some of our concerns about our soil we had purchased, we have added compost and are now going to try a Fall garden!

From the get go, we knew we wanted to try year round gardening. I bought this really awesome book, called The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener by Niki Jabbour, and we did some reading and decided to just go for it.
About a week ago, I decided to start seeds in those cute little peat pots. Unfortunately, they dry out really fast and I made the decision to bring the tray into the house to keep a better eye on it.
This turned out to be a mistake, as less than 24 hours after doing that, my sweet 3 year old decided to water them herself but instead knocked the whole tray over onto the floor. It was a complete accident and she felt so terrible about it. That dirt (with a menagerie of seeds) was tossed into one of the corners of the garden bed, so we’ll see what comes up.
Here’s what we are planting in our garden this Fall!
- Sugar Snap Peas
- Carrots (two kinds!)
- Brussel Sprouts
Wow, looking at that list, we’ve planted way more than I thought! haha
We are hoping by drying out our soil and then adding in a good compost to it that we’ll have a good yield this Fall. I’m determined to have a better garden this Fall than we did this past summer.
Are you planting a Fall garden?
