Eat Veggies, save the planet


September in the garden in Austin

     We are still eating okra, eggplant, butternut squash, peppers and cucumbers from the summer garden.

     I have planted about 80% of my fall garden. The broccoli, cauliflower, cabbages, and brussel sprout transplants are in now.

     And the seeds are coming up.  The kale and mustard are about 3 inches high. The lettuce, spinach, collards and turnips are about an inch high. The carrots and rutabaga are just coming up. And I am still waiting for the snow peas to show there faces.

     My gardening neighbor got the rutabaga seeds on his recent trip to Iceland.  Did you know that rutabaga is the national vegetable of Iceland? Probably it is all they can grow in that “ashtray of a country.”  That is what my soon to be son-in-law calls Iceland.

All you need to garden in Iceland is a greenhouse. The hot springs heat them in the winter.
