Though it isn’t quite fall yet, my garden is already making the transition to a new season. The beans were dying, so I yanked them out and replaced the top layer of soil with fresh compost. So it was out with the beans and in with the arugula, spinach and lettuce. Arugula peppers the basil bed in preparation for the cold snap that will kill off the basil. Radishes are popping up around the wilting perennials, and lettuce and arugula are back in the cold frames. Sadly, I got to things a little too late to plant some fall sweet peas– next year!
Here’s to impending fall salads and lots of arugula pesto.
