Fall Flavorfest In The Garden

Fall is a time for reflection in the garden. What crops grew well, what would you do differently next year and more. After all, taking notes and learning from experiences are some major factors that lead to edible gardening success.

Fall is also a time that some crops really kick it up a notch. As temps drop tastiness goes up. Go ahead, try out some fresh fall kale. What do you taste? It is probably more flavorful and sweeter than it was just a couple of weeks prior. Beets are another vegetable that I notice more intense flavors in during fall months. I am not the only one who notices this flavor phenomenon.

Our littlest DIY Backyard Farmer gives a quick glimpse into our current crop of beets and kale as fall sets in and flavors rise. Take a look. If she doesn’t make you want to grow your own then no one will!

    • wow! sorry to hear about your beet problem. Sounds like a bad batch of seeds or bad weather after direct sowing into the soil. If at first you don’t succeed…

      In this case, don’t “beet” yourself up too much over it! Sorry, I could not resist!
