Fall Crops?

Here are a few things I harvested from the garden yesterday.

We got asparagus, beets and broccoli there along with a few tomatoes. Yes, those are SPRING planted broccoli plants. The side shoots still coming on in mid September.

We stop picking asparagus in early July. Then we let the ferns grow wild until frost (They get 6 feet tall!).

This year with so much rain, we are still getting new shoots down at the base so about once a week there is enough for a couple servings. Fresh asparagus in September, what a treat.

Those beets have been planted since spring too. Wasn’t sure if they would get woody but again with all the rain they were huge but still tender.

This has been a great garden year!
