I cleared the summer weeds and grass out of my low tunnel and planted a fall garden on September 18. The tunnel is roughly 25 feet long and sporting 6 mil poly. I thought I’d take you for a tour and show you how things are growing!

I allowed my collards, brussel sprouts, and broccoli plants (that I let over-summer) stay. I wanted to see if they might produce this fall as they failed to come to harvest back in the spring. Turns out that was a good move because I harvested a whole Dutch oven of collards and a colander of brussel sprouts for Thanksgiving!

Collard greens are yum!
Pretty decent brussel sprouts even after a long summer.

I planted more collards, bok choy, Chinese cabbage, red and yellow onions, green onions, leeks, two different kinds of beets, spinach, and three different kinds of lettuce.

Bok choy – ready for harvest.

Chinese cabbage – just starting to head up.
Those are some big brussel sprouts!
It was 60 degrees today with such a beautiful sunset…

Please pardon my weeds…
