The Best Part of Southern Living? Fall Y'all

Last Sunday I mentioned my hobby was crazy quilting. I’m not sure if it qualifies as a hobby or simply an obsession with fresh produce, but I am also a keen gardener.

Living in Coastal Georgia, the best time to grow a wide variety of vegetables is from August to the following February. While northern gardeners are putting their plots to

sleep, I and my Southern kin are turning over beds, adding lime and fertilizer and planning the cold weather crops.

I start my plants from seeds and make my own seed starting mix; yes, I’m that die hard. The crops I am sowing this week are potatoes, cabbage, collards, peas, carrots, beets, and rutabagas; with good weather, we’ll harvest for Thanksgiving.

Do you garden? Start your own plants? Obsess over fresh from

the garden produce?
