Starting to prepare for the fall

It's really hard to imagine, but the weather is such that I feel I should start planting fall and winter crops. We had a week of 90 degrees, but not it's down to cool and breezy again. The artist/gardeners came today. Pulled out the last of the bug infested kale. Can't keep those plants forever. We cultivated where the kale used to be, added compost, and planted parsnips and red kale. Then we planted a row of royal oak leaf lettuce (a real favorite this year).

Had two of the ladies for lunch, plus my visiting younger daughter. It was a delicious lunch- fresh garden salad )royal oak leaf lettuce, red onion, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, olive oil and balsamic vinegar, with a sprinkling of parmesan. Delicious!
