Wordless{ish} Wednesday: Fall wha?

If you follow my instagram, you might see my #papermamafarm photos. I’ve been THOROUGHLY enjoying my little itty bitty garden. This is the first year we’ve really put a lot of time, care, and effort into growing veggies. I’m learning what I like, what I won’t do next year, and which veggies are not worth all my water and effort (sorry cabbage, you’re out).

AND, now we’re headed into fall… YUP, I said it. It will be here before you know it. I’m really going to miss having a yard right there… full of yummy food for dinner or lunch. We have a ton of carrots that will keep on going and last for a while longer, but I will really miss the spinach and tomatoes.

I’m already getting the terrible idea to build a tiny green house (our yard is seriously small…..). We are no where near ready to build that… so, for now: I will just need to do some research about more fall/winter veggies. Next year I will be more prepared with my veggies. Maybe a green house next year? I gotta be careful… don’t want to freak my husband out tooooo much with all my crazy ideas. He’s finally accepted the fact that we will be getting little chickens next year! Hee…. I’ll bring up the greenhouse later….

    What a cute pic of loving little carrots! LOVE that one. Good luck to you with the fall stuff. Have you tried root veggies like parsnips? Those are one of my faves.

    that second pictures looks awesome! I wish I had even the tinest green thumb, but… sadly, I think it's more black than green.. meaning I just kill anything {besides humans/animals} that were once alive before they became mine.

      I usually have a black thumb… turns out watering your plants helps a lot. Ha! I learned that this year. 😉

    Have you thought about building a cold frame? They can be a lot smaller than a green house, just angled against one wall.

    Ooh, these are gorgeous pictures. My husband is the crazy gardener of our pair, and he 'surprised' me with chicks this spring. Perhaps I should be prepared for the greenhouse…I think it's a great idea, hope you are successful! Loved visiting your blog!

  • Amber on said:

    make sure you keep your chickens far from your garden when you get them. Those suckers know how to destroy some veggies REAL quick!! 🙂

      Oh man, I bet! We'll put some mesh wire up around the boxes. Hopefully that works.

    How about dandelion lettuce (shield the ground a bit against getting too wet, but freezing cold is no problem), leek, winter onion,
    celeriac? I have no idea how cold it gets where you are, but these are some vegetables that grow well in the winter around here. Have fun!
