Our fall gardening is going strong here in South Florida as we head into December. Though we had a late start this year due to weather events, we are well on our way to filling up our beds with organic veggies that can be grown now and into the spring. “Winter” is not worth mentioning because we don’t really have one here. We consider the winter solstice (December 21-22) as the transition time for us from fall to early spring when it comes to gardening.
Continuing on from our first post, Yess!! Fall Planting – Getting Started! here is a breakdown of where we are at this point with planting:
Grown and being harvested: (of course, more of each will be planted)
Planted and growing well:
Just sprouting after direct seeding, or newly transplanted into the beds:
Holdovers from last season, that survived the summer
Seedlings in flats or 4″ pots now, to be transplanted to beds when ready:
Seeds newly planted in flats this week:
Crop failures so far:
So that’s what we have going on so far with our fall gardening. We are very excited at this time of year to continue prepping our remaining beds, planting seeds in flats and beds, transplanting seedlings, watching everything sprout and grow, and last but not least, beginning to enjoy the harvest! Much more on the harvesting and cooking to come!
