It's been a while, but we're still pluggin' away here at Castle Turling. I got one of the two raised beds to actually grow some winter vegetables. That we ate!
In this bed is broccoli first and foremost. We're coming to the end of the season. It was 91F today, so I'm guessing this won't last much longer.
I also planted a ton of lettuce, not realizing just how far lettuce goes. I've been trimming away at it for salads and it just keeps on growing. I think I'll put in about half next year. I also have carrots, onions and garlic in here.
I also put in winter squash, but I'm guessing winter squash is named using the same reasoning as Iceland and Greenland, meaning winter squash needs to be planted in the summer. Because this stuff sprouted and took one look at the weather and immediately died. Bastards.
Anyway, the summer raised bed will get planted soon. Then, I'll do a second planting in the winter bed after it's been cleared out, which I'm guessing will not be long from now. In the meantime, I'll keep enjoying that lettuce.
