Fall Garden Update: Week 2
The cabbage, collards, and Swiss chard have been in the ground for one week. So far, none of them have gone to the big garden in the sky, which I consider a victory. The Swiss chard is doing the best, followed by the collards, and then the cabbage. If I actually pick any decent sized green vegetables later this fall I will be amazed I outsmarted my fall garden black thumb.
Yesterday I planted three more Swiss chard plants in three terracotta pots and put them on the front stairs. When we left for school/work this morning Mason pointed to the pots. “Look dad! Your seeds are growing! You’re so good at this,” he said with a big smile on his face. If he only knew!
