Going into fall garden season

The tomatoes are just about gone. We haven’t had significant rain for almost 3 weeks with temperatures in the 90ºs during the day, and not cooling off much at night. Another couple days and we will pull up the rest of the tomatoes and try to get a fall garden started.

Another website said lettuce might germinate if planted in the evening, then ‘watered’ with a cover of ice over the top. We’ll try and get some things started in pots in the greenhouse and then transplant into the garden in early September.
