Fall Planting

The Savvy Housekeeper’s future salad
I’m blessed with a long growing season here in California and I take advantage of it. A couple of weeks ago I put in my fall crops in both my main garden bed and some containers. I planted:

  • Lettuce and spinach in a container for easy access and protection from cold
  • More spinach and lettuce in the main garden bed
  • Garlic–two rows from sprouting garlic I didn’t use in the kitchen
  • Fava beans
  • Carrots
  • Golden beets
  • Walking onions–someone gave me some bulbs

So far, the lettuce in the container, garlic, and fava beans are coming up. In fact, the fava seedlings look great. If you have never had a fava bean, they taste like a combination between a lima bean and a potato. I’m looking forward to them.
