Bexley Farmers' Market: August 6th

"The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not."

Mark Twain

Think About Your Fall Garden...

"Cool autumn weather favors a long list of leafy greens and root crops, from spinach and kale to radishes and rutabagas. Planting fall crops may be the last thing on your mind during the dog days of summer, but growing a garden to maturity before cold weather sets in means getting started in mid- to late-summer, just as the first warm-weather crops start to peter out."

The time has come to start thinking about your fall garden!

So, what will it be? Lettuce, arugula, kale? Beets, carrots, or broccoli? How about all of that and more! Check out Brian Barth's article, How to Plant a Fall Garden, found on the Modern Farmer website to learn more about planting your fall garden.
