Transition to Fall Plantings

It’s hard to believe that we had 90 degree days just a couple weeks ago, but if the plants are any indicator, we can tell that the tomatoes, basil and chives had a stellar year in the Ozone Garden. The slightly cooler temperatures combined with the rain brought out a bumper crop of tomatoes.

As we transition into Fall, the volunteers have begun to plant peas and now tulips.

First things first, was to prep the bed for these gorgeous bulbs. There was finally enough rain that the ground didn’t need to be tilled. I arranged the bulbs about 6 to 8 inches apart and quickly went to work. If these bulbs don’t get eaten by squirrels, then they’ll just be heavenly come Spring.
