    I am running a few weeks late this year (no surprise there) I am just putting in the fall garden. I am growing georgia collards, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower. What do you grow in your area? Here in the south seems like we can grow something all year -- gotta love those mild winters!

    I will be planting Sugar Snap peas (they are fall/spring crops here), broccoli, maybe cauliflower, spinach (husband loves spinach), might try kale this winter, lettuce, swiss chard. And I will start my onions and garlic in November for next summers harvest.

    Quote:I have done some canning but not as much as some of the other BYC members. I am new to it. I have done apple butter, pear honey and apple jelly (which looks and taste good but it is kinda runny). Oh, and I put up some fresh pears too. I have had a lot of fun canning and freezing things out of my gardens this year. I am gonna be Laura Ingalls if it kills me![​IMG]

    I cannot plant anything cause it will FREEZE solid in a month or so LOL! Fall is when us northerners start bringing in everything we put out for Summer and start planning our snowbird vacations LOL! [​IMG]

    We're holding over pepper plants which should produce for at least another month. And we have butter beans and tiny field peas which we planted late and are now filling out.

    We've planted collards, cabbage collards, 6 varieties of leaf lettuces, savoy cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower. Also spinach, Swiss chard, beets, green onions, mustard, kale and turnip greens.

    We're not quite as warm as GA - and certainly not as warm as FL - but we'll have a Fall garden until Thanksgiving, and maybe into Dec depending on how early the first truly killing frost comes. The lettuces will be the first to go if left unprotected, but we usually cover the rows for the first few light frosts.

    I'll soon be putting in broccoli and cauliflower and perhaps some romaine lettuce... that and I have to cut back my January tomatoes and water my peppers... I'll probably put in some more peas as well.
