The oppressive summer temps seem to have left us at least on most days now. For the next week our highs are in the low to mid 90”s meaning it is far more comfortable to get outside. And overnight temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s make early morning treks out in the yard very enjoyable.
This year, we have decided to experiment in the garden. Last year we planted brussel sprouts in the fall and we had to wait until spring to harvest them. So this fall, we started talking about the fall garden in the spring.
We have planted from seed cucumbers, radishes, dill, beets and leaf lettuce. We bought plants of cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage and collards. Now the wait begins. But in the week since the cucumbers and radishes were planted, we are seeing results. The radishes will need to be thinned in the next week as will a couple of the cucumbers. The cucumbers will be trellised in order to save space in the garden. I trellised cucumbers one year and in an area of about 4’X10’ I was able to grow enough cucumbers to put up 72 quarts of dill pickles!
Also in among the transplants are some radish seeds as part of the experiment. If things turn out I will post more pictures along the journey.
I have discovered a couple of great things about fall gardening so far. First the grass is beginning to slow its growth making it easier to keep on the weeding. Second, it is cooler to get out and weed and have my 19 month old daughter in the yard. Deciding what to plant can be as easy as a trip to the store and seeing what is available in the seed and plant section. Normally if it is there it will grow. If you are worried about if you have time, Sumter’s Average first frost date is November 5th.. We have a 10% chance of having first frost by October 21st, so if you want to be conservative use that day. Using the first frost date count back the number of days on the plant or seed package to see if the crops have time to mature before frost hits. For ideas of what to plant you can also visit the Clemson Extension Website.
Good luck and go enjoy the fall!
