Here in eastern PA, we have had only one cold night, which reached 25 degrees. Otherwise it has been a great growing season. We have enough kale, chard, lettuce and other greens for a daily salad and eggs and greens. I planted probably like 300 spinach plants which have done great. Picked 20 Napa cabbage, carrots, radishes, turnips, bok choy, herbs.
At this point, I don’t get enough sunlight to keep things growing, but they aren’t dying either. Hopefully I can get the spinach and kale to overwinter in the hoop house and get some early spring pickings.
I am between Houston and Dallas. I picked a few black eyed peas today. I planted them late just to put nitrogen in the soil and they are making like crazy. If the cold weather holds off another week I will have everything ready. The peas and tomatoes are the only warm weather plants I still have that haven’t quite finished yet. I am overrun with turnips, broccoli, cauliflower, greens, and tomatoes. I had planted almost 300 early this year and they survived the summer. I should pick them one last time this week
