balanceandkindness said: What crops are good to plant in the fall ? And when should I plant my flowers for spring???

Assuming you live in the Southeast US, some good fall crops are cabbage, kale, turnips, radishes, Swiss chard, beets, carrots, peas, brussel sprouts, spinach, lettuce, onions, mustard, and I’m sure many many more that I’ve missed. Flowers for Spring, so I’m assuming you’re talking about flower bulbs? If you are, the general rule of thumb is you plant spring-flowering bulbs in the fall and fall-flowering bulbs in the Spring. If you’re talking about transplant flowers for Spring, we usually have to wait until late March to early April here in the Southeast.

Been raining like March in N. California where I used to live.  80 degrees later this week thank goodness ( or I might consider returning to CA).  Canned dill pickles today!

Some of the Sarracenia in one of the campus greenhouses. They weren’t labeled but they look like S. alata,
S. leucophylla, and some various hybrids.

More from the garden. This year there was a lot of experimenting and truthfully a lot of failure. Much of it stemmed from the haste in which I planted the garden and some of it was just plain ol inexperience. I’m looking forward to starting my first ever fall garden soon though our imminent move might push that back a bit farther than I’d like.
