Joy in the garden and what to expect in your fall and winter gardens:
We planted small varieties of carrots such as “Little Finger” from Botanical Interests and kept the soil consistently moist until they germinated.
Even though garden centers have turned their inventory to Christmas trees, you can still find lettuce, Swiss chard, spinach, kale,and herb transplants. Also, keep direct sowing radishes. You may get a wonderful winter crop of vitamin packed vegetables.

I’m very happy about your cultivation of aji dulce peppers! They’re one of the unique culinary staples of Venezuelan cuisine. Are they available to us commoners? If so,what do we have to do to get a few of these gems?
