Last night Five the baby chick helped me plant the last of my fall garden seeds outdoors. I say outdoors because I have every intention of starting Swiss Chard and Kale seeds indoors every two weeks from now until December so I can reach my goal of growing 2,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables this year.
We ended up planting 4 packets of beet seeds. Hopefully I’m not planting them too late. I did soak the beet seeds in water overnight hoping to give them a jump-start. We’ll see if it works.
If all goes well, these will be our Thanksgiving beets. Roasted vegetables rule, and it would be pretty awesome if we could go without having to buy any carrots, potatoes, or beets this winter.
How about you?
Are you finished planting all your seeds for the year?
Are you ready for the gardening season to be over?
