103 degrees and thinking about broccoli

Those of you who appreciate the leafy greens and root vegetables of the cooler seasons will be happy to know: they are on the way!

What was summer garden is rapidly transforming into newly composted and tilled beds, ready to hold the bounty of fall and winter. In the picture above, the middle three beds were planted yesterday morning with beets, radishes, carrots and Ā turnips in one bed, collards, mustard, baby bok choy and mesclun in another, and spinach, chard, and kale in another.

The two beds way on the left with a scattering of green (mostly weeds, in fact) are the first planting of root vegetables. The beds on the far right are yet to be planted, and off in the distance is the pasture with the goats grazing in it.
