I’m finally getting around to posting a wrap-up of my fall garden which was quite good, particularly in comparison with my summer garden in 2010. Here it is February and we are still eating fresh winter squash and Jerusalem artichokes from the fall garden along with frozen beans. The big hit from the fall garden was the string beans. They were extremely productive with over 15 lbs of beans harvested from our 8 x 10 raised bed at Turkey Foot Farm. Just about everything was a big success except our beets and Swiss chard which got wiped out by a mole that dug a tunnel right down the rows. It seems the mole was just digging along the row because we watered there and during the drought it was the only place the mole could find water. The mole also dug through the bean patches but the beans seemed unharmed by the mole’s tunnels. Below is a table summarizing the planting dates, harvest dates and yield of our fall garden which consisted of two 8 x 10 foot raised beds made from cinderblocks.
