    I think I will clean out the two boxes and plant for fall. Suggestions?
    Fall greens, like radicchio and endive along with more lettuce. The bonus with the radicchio is that if you don't finish harvesting it all, it will come back early in the spring and you can eat it then.

    Every year, I vow not to grow so many zucchini and cucumbers and this year I didn't and am lamenting that I haven't been able to make pickles or the many dishes I make with extra zucchini. Some people are never happy.

    Tomatoes not doing well this year, or sweet peppers. The hot peppers are great - have already fermented a batch of jalapenos. Had a good sugar snap pea crop. I had 2 varieties I'd not grown before and they were tasty but very small. Spring lettuce is mostly gone (bolted). Herbs were off to a slow start but are doing well now except for basil which has little black insect spots on most of it. Just harvested a boat load of garlic, so I'm safe from vampires for another year.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I was going to try more lettuce, and I'll look through the seeds and see if I have any other others.

    Rosa, the cumin seed was in a green bean dish. It goes into the oil and starts to darken before you out the beans in. It’s a little bit nutty and the flavor is more concentrated/separate than with powder.

    I feel like growing spices I am going to use whole is easier than ground spices - I don’t have a spice grinder and the idea of cleaning it adequately between varieties is a lot.

    I’m giving away an extra rooster today.
