Our Autumn Cabbage Garden

Being finished with the main chores in the front room, I can pay more attention to my garden again. Wow, I neglected it for several weeks. The garden beds need a lot of work, before they will look nice and healthy again.  Yesterday, I’ve got one of the beds ready: I pulled the leftover plants and the weeds out, loosened the soil, and mixed more soil and amendment in. Today I added two more bags of soil, before I started planting and sowing. Now, one of the beds looks pretty again. I planted broccoli, white & red cabbages, and cauliflower. And in the space between the vegetables I have sown carrots, radishes, rutabagas, and turnips. They are all yummy Winter goodies. Since I have the chicken wire around the garden beds, the rabbits can not get to them. I hope, the Cabbage White Butterfly doesn’t come around to lay its eggs at this time of the year. That would be a bummer.
