Tomatoes are done, beans and zucchini did poorly, and the amaranth never sprouted. Now what? It's time to start planning and prepping for the fall garden:

    What do you do to plan you fall garden?

    I don’t know what kind of weather you’ve had, but out here it’s darn near impossible to start small seeds without a complete soaking of the soil, my (bordered) raised beds have had poor germination of radish and carrots without overhead watering the first week or so.

    I suppose that I grow a little less organized that yourself. I’ve yet to replace my spent row of peas, and we don’t transition our gardens from summer to fall as most of the spring crops are in raised beds that transitions into the fall garden. The summer garden is its own monster until first light frost then we cover crop.

    Sorry for the long comment but I’m curious do you use mulch? Have you poked around where your drip lines aren’t to check out the moisture distribution as far as both depth and width?

    Happy growing! And thanks for the continuous content.

    I have used mulch on my tomato bed. I have plenty of shredded leaves for mulch. I usually only plant under the emitters, so there's plenty of moisture there. Apparently Amaranth is very difficult to germinate.


    What cover crops do you usually plant?
