Garden update

We spent the week working hard on preparing the garden for fall planting.  Because of the rain, we were able to quickly regain control of the weeds because of the soft ground.  The kids and I worked in the garden most every day this week in the mornings.  We have a  row of sweet potatoes that are growing very nicely.  The okra has also regained some life and we are still harvesting okra which took a beating during the drought.  We still have a few surviving squash plants that have started producing fruit again as well.
Today, we planted spinach and lettuce.  Next week, we will prepare several more plots with more spinach and lettuce as well as some other fall gardening veggies like cabbage and broccoli.
Now that the weather seemed to immediately switch on to Fall, we have renewed strength to focus on fall and winter gardening.
