The summer crops are fading but the chard is just hitting its stride! We love chard as a fall crop. It thrives during the cooler days of fall, and often overwinters beautifully in mild climates. 🌱 What climate are you growing in and what are your favorite crops to grow this time of year?

We're hiring a seasonal maintenance team member to work alongside our crew cleaning up and preparing gardens for fall! Check out the link our profile for more info. πŸ‚πŸŒ±πŸ…

A small sample of what I harvested from my 150 square ft annual vegetable garden today! Just a reminder that you don't need a ton of space to grow a hearty harvest. The gardens we design/build and maintain range in size, shape and form, and I love designing and working in them all, but I especially love the challenge of growing a high yield vegetable garden in a smaller amount of space. To be successful in small spaces you really have to stay on top of things and clear crops as soon as they're finished, or are comprised by pest or disease. But at the same time, smaller gardens can also be much more practical to maintain for many busy people. If you're thinking about building a garden this fall, ask yourself how much time you have to dedicate to your garden each week and design your space accordingly!

Anemones ✨ These beauties have been blooming since June and are visited by bumblebees all day long. If you're looking for a low maintenance perennial flower to attract pollinators to your garden, this one would be at the top of my list. They do spread by rhizome, so keep that in mind when planting. I usually use them to fill out narrow, well contained, partially shaded beds that aren't suitable for larger perennials. ✌️

Harvesting the last of my Provider bush beans for the season! I'm sad to see these plants go, but it's time to make room for fast growing fall salad greens and radishes. 🌱 Also, the last photo I posted was a harvest of Provider bush beans from the same planting. I've harvested about 8 gallons (I'm measuring by 2-gallon ziplock bags ☺️) off of this 2x8 foot planting-3 rows b/c one is right along the edge of the raised bed.✌️

Fall zinnias ✨ These were actually seeded this spring, but zinnias can flower for months if the plants are healthy and the flowers are dead headed regularly! I direct seed my zinnias and encourage them to branch out by regularly cutting flower stems from the plants.
