Fall Start Up

Category: Square Foot Gardening | Posted: Tue Sep 15, 2009 12:10 am

Rodney build 5 4 x 4 frames using cedar fence posts. We filled them with 1 1/2 yards of organic soil on Wednesday, Sept 9. After being sick and receiving the first rain after a long hot summer we were able to start planting on Monday, Sept 14. In the first frame we planted Premium Crop Broccoli, Golden Swiss Chard, Fordhook Swiss Chard, Premix Cabbage, Jersey Warfield Cabbage, beets, Chinese Cabbage, and collards.
The second frame only contains climbing spinach and arugula.
The third frame contains crookneck squash, zucchini squash, and butternut squash.
The fourth frame contains Blue Lake Green Beans, bush beans, sugar snap peas, and
The fifth frame contains Golaite Hybrid Tomatoes, Amelia Hybrid Tomato, grape tomatoes, Bonnie Green Bell Pepper, Pimento Bell Pepper, Clemson Spinless Okra, and cucumber.
We plan to plant Irish potatoes and Lima beans this week, seed turnips by the 25th, then shallots, lettuce, leeks (transplants), greens, and kale.

Sounds like you will have a wonderful garden.

Why not introduce yourself in Members Gallery so we can all get aquainted with you.

I see you are from Texas. We have several fellow Texans on the forum. Welcome!

Wow! You planted a lot of things. You will have winter vegetables for sure. I live in Madisonville, Texas so it's not too far from you. Please post in the forums, too. We would like to hear more about your garden. dooley

Looks like winter is your gardening time in Austin. Can't wait to see pictures to help me through the rain and wet of winter. :)
