Growing Fall Veggies

Well, I’ve eaten thousands of cherry tomatoes this summer, not to mention a few jalapeño peppers and cucumbers. Now I’m taking advantage of the Mid-Atlantic fall weather to grow some lettuce, spinach, beets, Swiss Chard, and scallions before a hard frost hits us. I figure I’ve got a couple months of salads to enjoy. I should have started a few weeks earlier, but I’m still feeling good about it!

My tomatoes are certainly thriving. As always, my favorites are the Sungold variety. They are so sweet and perfectly bite-sized. I was worried about critters getting to them when the plants were small, but we’re well past that now. However, I do see evidence of my chipmunks having a little snack most mornings.They don’t seem to like the skin much. I wish I could catch one in the act- just to take a photo, of course.

Well, how are your tomatoes?

This scorching heat is really bringing the tomatoes along nicely here in the DC area. Don’t forget to water, especially if you’re growing in pots!
