Welcome to the group. We live in NE FL so we have a growing season almost year round. I have just started to grow and most of my first year was tomatoes, peppers, some herbs I am planning on some other crops now but not too many to make sure ai do not get overwhelmed until we learn what grows well and when. I am trying araised bed for some veggies. Hubby knows I will get out work in the spring and fall and through the cold. When our temps are at 90++ with heat index over 100, I do not go out until about dark to work
Keep on track

Welcome to the team! I'm in the midwest too. Still have carrots and beets in the ground that haven't been killed by the cold yet, but everything else has been harvested for the year as well. Many of us have learned the same way - by trial and error. If you have any questions, feel free to post them under the Gardening advice, ideas, questions forum. I'm sure you'll get some great suggestions. And now is the time to be planning and preparing for next year, so you can hit the ground running in the spring once the weather is right!
..and yes our growing season outdoors is over but if you have a greenhouse then you have veggies/fruit all year round
No I do not have a greenhouse so my season is over. Looking forward to being in this group to learn some more about organic gardening. DH and I and some friends n family have been gardening for 5 years now. We are mostly organic but once in awhile we find we have to use chemicals to kill a pest.
Anyway we mostly have learned by the seat of our pants and have been very successful in having a bounty to share with the garden crew, family and folks in the neighborhood.
We have 6 six acres and we only garden maybe 1/2 acre and we grow some of everything. Wish we could use more of the land but need to first know how to control some specific pest we face.
Anyway looking forward to learning from this group
