    Default Fall Gardens

    This year my spring garden got away from me and I simply gave up on it. I've mowed most of it down, because the weeds took over faster than I could control them. I even mulched and pulled tiny weeds as they came up, but for three weeks I was out of town and we had rain several times a week.

    Last year I planted green beans, cabbage and peas for fall and they done well. I will be trying more this year. Does anyone else plan on having a fall garden and what will you plant?

    I just picked up some tomato plants to throw in. Leaving room for some of the leafy veggies, and Epasote.

    Too friggin hot out right now to plant fall crops. We are having triple digit heat and high humidity.

    Why I planted my little gardenette on monday, I think. I'm also trying the cut them back thing with my tomatoes from spring. I basically whacked them back, some to just stems, and some with the lowest branches and leaves intact, to see if they will come back for fall.

    I'm holding off til the nd of August before I plant my fall garden. We usually have nice long Fall weather without freeze. I have several greenhouses just incase though.

    Has anybody tried cutting back the spring tomato plants to fill out again in fall?
