  1. wow, that is a lot of food! don’t know where you find the time with a little one and animals and homemaking to keep up with as well! where do you get all of your seeds? onion sets? didn’t know you could plant butternut squash now?

    • A few of these things are almost ready to harvest from spring, but needed a space to finish up in the fall garden (peppers, leeks, pumpkins). I don’t know what your elevation is. We get hard frosts in mid-October so we need to get things in and out as quickly as possible. Our butternut squash was planted last month and is about two inches tall now.

      Everything we are growing we started from seed… even the bulb onions. We got our spring seeds at Bakers Creek Heirloom Seeds and our fall seeds from Annie’s Heirloom Seeds. There was no reason for the change and both are priced the same. We just wanted to try out a few “open pollinated, heirloom only” seed companies to find our favorite.

  2. Maddie goes into first grade tomorrow (eek!) so I am planning to turn over my raised bed this week while she’s at school and hopefully build a second bed and get that planted too. I have been pouring over catalogs and drooling over everything…I just can’t make up my mind! I think carrots and onions to be sure and some peas, but maybe some leeks and squash if I can start them this late…oh the choices!

    • Even if you don’t get seeds for another few weeks, you have plenty of time for: cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts (although good luck getting the kids to eat them), beets, carrots, cauliflower, peas, spinach, radishes, turnips, and garlic.
      Phew!
