My fall peas are just reaching the point where they’re starting to fill out the pods. Truth be told I should have planted them a few weeks earlier, but I couldn’t since the garlic wasn’t ready to be harvested yet.
When it comes to fall/winter gardening, the cool weather isn’t quite as big of a deal as the reduced daylight hours. Things are much slower to mature since they’re getting 3-5 fewer hours of sunlight. That’s definitely something to remember when sowing for a second harvest.
I’m crossing my fingers that they’ll survive long enough to produce a decent crop for the freezer.
Do you have any fall/winter crops that are ready to harvest?Filed under Around the Garden | Comments (8)
