Fall Garden

We've dedicated much of our lawn space to landscaping and gardening, especially in our front yard where we get the most amount of sunlight.  Pretty soon, I don't even think we'll have much grass left to mow.  This is definitely not the norm here.  None of our neighbors have mini hoop houses, tomato plants and patches of kale growing in their front yards.  But we don't care. 

We've had a few frosty mornings, but next week we'll have our first hard freeze.  It won't stop us from growing more food, though.  In our garden right now, we still have lots of kale (which is delicious after a frosty morning!), turnips, beets, swiss chard, thyme, sage,  arugula and cabbage. We even have some flowers still blooming.

Do you garden? Do you grow food year-round?
