Fall Garden Update

Category: Gardening | Posted: Tue Sep 16, 2014 9:38 am

The squash and cucumbers are looking great and have started producing. The okra, rattlesnake beans and zucchini are also looking really good.

True to form, my tomato seedlings started out wonderfully and then just stalled. For the life of me I don't understand why I have so much trouble with tomatoes. I'll keep trying though. I refuse to give up.

I started some lettuce, but I must have had bad seed because only a couple came up. I tried again over the weekend with new seed.

I put some mustard and collard green seeds in the ground yesterday (yes, I do live in the South). The trick will be keeping the chickens off of them.

EG, I empathize about the problem of gro#ing tomatoes in Central & South FL.. I think it has to do #ith the tomatoes very narrow# heat range for setting fruit.. Gardeners in this area have their best success by starting the plants very early in Spring..

Thanks for the info Hank, but I have problems even in Spring. I'll keep at it and sooner or later will be successful.
