Cooldown to fall

Kale seedlings

Oat seedlingsThe seasons are subtly shifting. I've only got a couple weeks left for oat planting, so I'll be pulling out lots of used-up garden beds and seeding the winter cover crop this week.

Meanwhile, fall vegetables are starting to gain a foothold elsewhere in the garden. Peas and carrots and kale in one area, buckwheat preparing the way for garlic in another. That, plus a long row of lettuce, is all I have left to plant in the edible line in 2016.
