Autumn Planting Season- Two Weeks in Growth Update
Crossposted from my Blurt account 10/07/20 See information below for source.
Hello fellow planters and homesteaders!
Now is a great time to plant crops if you are in the south. I utilize raised-beds, which are easy to build using scrap wood and blocks. I use steer manure, which is the cheapest soil you can buy.
I am two weeks in, and check out the results:
Squash. Easy to grow and very hearty.
Lettuce. Huge yield. Last season we ate this crop for 5-months straight before it went to seed.
Spinach. I eat this daily. It is a great source of iron and fiber.
Carrots. These grow like a weed. You can grow them in soil if you need to with no fertilizer.
I plan on building three more beds for squash. I also plan on chopping and storing these crops in my Chefmate freezer.
