It doesn't take much for me to have gardening fever all year long.
September 2019: A few days ago I planted a small, enclosed, fall garden. I was about a month late, according to locals, and most sources. But knowing (from experience) it can be planted as late as November in our zone (climate), I went ahead and got the seeds and plants in the ground.
Late Winter & Early Spring 2020:
JANUARY 2021: The only thing growing is collards.
Summer 2021: We grew 2 dozen tomato plants, a few squash plants, peas, corn, and herbs.
Fall 2021: Planted Broccoli, Cauliflower, pansies and snapdragons. The flowers are beautiful, 🌺💐 the veggies have been destroyed by moths/worms.
Neem oil has been ordered to try again. It might be a good idea to order frost cloth, as well.
I'm working on new cool weather plants:
Greens of all sorts, mainly collards, kale, turnips and mustard.
Late Winter & Early Spring 2022
Late January: Planted storage and store-bought potatoes.
Late Feruary: Planted more potatoes.
Late March: More potatoes. Planted mustard greens and turnips in kiddy pool. Doing great so far, have eaten from them 2-3 times.
April: Planted yellow summer squash, and tomatoes in enclosed fenced area. (Rabbits got through the fence and ate collards, but hoping they won't bother these.)
MORE TO COME. . .We have more squash to plant as well as more summer crops.

Back to Eden, by Jethro Kloss
I highly recommend this book! Jethro Kloss, one of the early pioneers in herbal remedies, found that nature works better than drugs in his crusade for better health. Chapter 2 on Soil Preparation and Farming is especially interesting to me as I love growing fruits and vegetables, as well as foraging.
