Fall Crops are Planted

Our fall field is almost completely planted now and ready to grow. Many of the plants are growing under shade cloth because it's still too hot during the day for them. However, they really benefit from being planted when the days are still long. Fall crops are similar to spring crops, and we are trying again with a couple things that didn't turn out so well in the spring, like brussels sprouts and cauliflower. We've also expanded our planting area (and hopefully our harvests) for peas, garlic, and kohlrabi.
