Fall Garden Planting

20150915_154614[1]

I thought I would give you a little sneekity peek into what I have planted for the fall season.  The great thing about an EarthBox, which you can read about in my prior post, http://PaisleyAndPlaid.com/earthbox-gardening/ is that you get more versatility than if you were planting straight into crappy soil.  Plus, with an EarthBox once you plant the box with potting mix (not potting soil, which contains rock) you won’t need to replace the mix for 5 to 6 seasons.  I love that because our soil is very sandy and would have to be mixed with compost, potting soil and possibly other nutrients depending on what I want to plant and I just don’t find all that time, money and effort to be worth it.

This is my grape tomato and I like to underplant it with geraniums to keep certain bugs away.

This is my box of peppers.  I have poblanos, jalapenos, red and green peppers and sweet bananas.  I am not sure what this purple pepper is, but hell, I don’t care, its growing.

Here is the jalapeno growing just fine.

Below is one of my pineapples.  The easiest things to grow.  Just lop off the top of your pineapple, stick it in some water until roots start growing and plop it into some soil.  In two years I should have a pineapple growing from the top.

I have two zucchini plants.  They are tricky for me…the worms get it every time.  I will spray a pesticide on them today and then once per week to try to get the zuccs before the worms…hate them!

Here is a great box that just grew like crazy.  Its arugula on the left and chives.  I have a second arugula plant that is out of the picture.  I love making crispy flattened chicken and make a lemony vinaigrette to splash on with some big parmesan curls! Yum

Lastly is my herb box with parsley, dill and I have a box overrun with basil, tarragon and oregano.  The oregano I have not had to replant in five years.  It grows out behind Punkin’s garage in the shade and just is amazing.  The rest need to be replanted each season.  My rosemary died off after five years so I need to plant more, especially with Christmas coming.  I love to cover my beef tenderloin in rosemary, plus its great in the turkey cavity for Thanksgiving.

I realize I am lucky to be able to plant a fall garden where we live, which is considered tropical.  What are you planting?  Send me a picture.
