Each day, more leaves drift down from the trees and decorate my garden with the various shapes, colors, and textures of autumn. The season is in full swing. My fall garden beds are all planted, and they seemed to immensely enjoy the cloud-covered skies and intermittent rain yesterday, as did I. While my lettuces are thriving and ready to enjoy now, some of what I planted will not be ready to be harvested until spring or early summer. I am not anxious to rush through the seasons, but I am looking forward to the beautiful yellow daffodils that will shoot up next spring as well as topping freshly made focaccia with just-picked garlic and onion bulbs shortly after that.
Having a small outdoor space limits my ability to plant as much as I would like, but I am fortunate to have raised beds for vegetables and a small potted garden for lettuces and herbs. This fall I planted the following to mostly be used in savory scones, biscuits, and breads:
Lettuces and kale
After using all of my available space, I ended up with extra seeds. I had been dreaming up a fun and festive seed-sharing party, but with the holidays looming this idea will have to be shelved until the spring. However, I do still want to share my extra seeds. If you would like a small pouch of fennel, leek, onion, or little gem lettuce seeds, please let me know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or DM me through Instagram. I also have seed garlic available. It is too bulky to mail but if you live in Roseville, I would be happy to drop it off or you are welcome to pick it up. Each garlic bulb will grow about 8 garlic plants.
