Many crops thrive in the cool weather of fall in Alabama. Greens and roots are abundant along with broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and several herbs. We have already harvested and cured sweet potatoes and winter squash.
Early fall is great for growing beans. Pictured are 'Rattlesnake Beans'.
Below: Turnip Greens, just one type of cooking green we grow in the fall. Also grown are kale, collards, chard, mustard greens, bok choy, and rapini.
Red radishes are one of several varieties of radishes we grow, which includes 'French Breakfast', watermelon, and daikon. Other root vegetables we grow in fall are baby white turnips, 3 kinds of beets, carrots, and rutabaga.
Fall weather is perfect for salad greens!
Kale is gaining in popularity. It is one of the most nutritious vegetables out there. 'Lacinato' kale (pictured), also known as 'Dinosaur' kale, makes the best Kale Chips.
We have been especially busy this fall because we were married on the farm on October 20th!
