Getting Ready for Fall

It’s August, and that means it’s time to get ready for fall. It’s still a little too hot here in St. Louis to fully develop our autumn gardens, but we’re preparing for a garden overhaul. We got a head-start on the season by starting some seeds inside under the grow lights we made last spring. Here’s what’s new at Dave’s place so far:


Our summer cucumber plants succumbed to the heat. These cucumber seedlings were directly seeded, hopefully in time for a harvest before the first frost.

We transplanted broccoli seedlings that had been started inside.
We sowed some of the seeds we saved from our spicy salad greens, pictured here with hyssop.

Meanwhile, we’ve still got a lot growing strong.


Lots of beets to dig up!

Brussels sprouts

These brussels sprouts were planted recently and are almost ready to produce!
