fall garden?


we've always had a summer garden.  always.

this year, our garden proved to be exceptional...if i do say so myself.  everything we planted came from seeds we sprouted ourselves.  quite a big feat for us because in years past we've always planted seedlings from the "orange-y" home improvement warehouse.

snap beans.
sugar snap peas.
cucumber.
yellow squash.
zucchini.
roma tomatoes.
grape tomatoes.
bell peppers.
jalapeno peppers.
serrano peppers.
snow peas.
okra.

we even planted carrots & watermelon, but neither thrived.

we also grew sunflowers.  the not-so mammoth kind and the mammoth kind {click on the photo above & you'll see the sunflowers in the distance...the actual flower is drooped over because it's more than a foot in diameter.  our guesstimate is that it once stood about 14-15' tall & it finally snapped during a windy thunderstorm earlier this week}.

we were also pleasantly surprised to learn that the pineapple sage, basil & cilantro we planted last year came back...with a vengeance.  we planted rosemary last year, but it's so hardy we get to enjoy it year-round.  the red onions we planted last year did really well this year, too.

and, we even have a small fig tree {a gift from my parents} that is starting to bear fruit and i cannot wait to eat our first figs from that tree.

we've been enjoying the bountiful harvest our garden has given us and now it's time to start thinking about planting a fall garden.  we've never done a fall garden.  have you?

we'd like to sprout our own seeds again, but i'm at a loss of what we should plant, so help....

what would you plant in your fall garden?

Figs! Yum! I've never eaten fresh figs! I bet they taste even better home-grown!
