I've finally started on my Fall gardening.. just two items so far because it's been so hot I've not been able to be outdoors much.
This is my Swiss Chard and beets.. funny how they looks so much alike.. the top picture is the beets.
Their just cute little babies yet but not for long.. I hope to be pinching off and eating the chard by the end of next month.. if not sooner.
If you're wondering about all the roots you can see in the dirt.. I grew green beans in these pot and only tossed the stalks away.. the leftover roots will eventually mulch down and add more nutrients to the soil. I always reuse the soil in my containers by adding organic fertilizers such as rock minerals, calcium etc.
