To Everything There Is A Season
“To Everything There Is A Season” is not exactly an original line, but so true, especially in a garden. At this point in September however, we see both summer and fall crops co-mingling in the beds and that is something I certainly have occasion to enjoy.
While I’m not yet tired of tomatoes, I surely am happy to see lettuces and other greens that prefer the cooler nights and days coming into their own. Last night we enjoyed fresh young turnip greens with our field peas, sliced tomatoes and grilled sweet peppers. The best of both worlds!
While the favorites of both seasons have their brief moments of co-existing, it is clear the days are coming when heat loving summer vegetables will be finished. In the meantime, it is nice to see the bright green of the turnips and lettuces next to the struggling okra stalks.
