It's cooling....summer is fading into the back ground.
The benefit, you ask?
I have swiss chard and lettuce now, and it's doing well. Although they both require full sun, the summer sun is too harsh. Fall is the perfect time to grow, into winter and spring.
Both are easy to grow, and easy to find use for in the kitchen. The lettuce makes it into my sandwiches, and of course salads. Swiss chard can be cooked down for a nice side dish, or used in a great version of a taco!
