We might have freezing temps finally but what we do have planted is growing as it should...

The raised bed garlic is doing great and doing what it's supposed to be doing.  Hoping for some great heads of garlic in about five more months.

And then we harvested our first batch of collard greens.  They look great and other than one plant that's seemingly way behind the others, they are putting on lots of leaves.  After this harvest, we should have another batch in a week or two.

Fall gardening, small as it may be, is giving us ideas for future gardening and trying out some other crops next time.  One of our customers was telling me on the phone the other day that they were harvesting broccoli from their Houston backyard garden.  We had never even thought about growing that.  We already know that Napa cabbage works great.  So next Fall we might try some broccoli.  If you've seen our food pics, you know we love us some broccoli!  

We're back up to the 70's after dipping into the upper 20's.  'Tis the season in this part of the world.


  1. I was just thinking this morning wondering how your garlic and collard greens was doing and now I know. :}
    Looks Great!

  2. Your garlic is growing beautifully! Looks like you’re going to have lots of delicious meals with your collard greens.

  3. Thanks. I need to plant some garlic in a pot on the front porch! You will have lots of practice and ideas once you are out on the farm full-time.

  4. I'm having a one-sided contest with you on growing garlic! My grocery store has stopped carrying Elephant Garlic which I like much better than regular so I bought bulbs. I planted a couple of weeks later than you did but they are growing well. I'm in Florida and we are still having weird weather. Hope to be able to show you my harvest and thanks for the push to grow my own!
