    The weather should moderate this next week. I plan to put in my fall garden. Is there anything I should NOT plant now? I think I have row covers planned out and all but the plastic available for frosty nights in fall.

    My summer garden is up! Over all a late start but I am very happy with it!

    I am starting my fall garden - mostly peas, beans, carrots... IF the peas and beans don't produce much, I can always just turn them under to fix some nitrogen in the ground for spring. I am also "saving" next years spot for spring peas and making sure it is ready for planting. I will be able to get the peas in earlier next year if the bed is ready in the fall.
