Chard. While hardy chard may have survived the summer heat to provide you with some leafy greens, adding more to your garden will give you a beautiful crop for a fall harvest if your current plants are fading or have been completely used up. Plant it earlier rather than later for the most prolific crop (except in warmer climates, where chard may very well last until spring). And choose some variety: Green is good, but yellow, red and purple will mix well with other fall colors.

How To Build A Square Foot Vegetable Garden And Save Space
If you haven’t heard of square foot gardening before, it is a quick and easy way to have a high yield garden in a small space. 16 square feet to be exact. The method reminds me of combining raised bed gardening with vertical gardening all with the same result. Lots and lots of full blooms and vegetables.
Super Charge Your Nutrition with Chard! Despite my best efforts, somewhere around the age of 8 or 9 years old, my boys adopted the philosophy that “if it’s green, it’s yucky!” Boo to that, so I’ve been on a mission to counter it with … “greens are great!” I've found that swiss chard's mild flavor makes it the perfect green to introduce to those picky eaters in your family since chard does not have the strong, slightly bitter aftertaste typical of other healthy greens.

Mulching your vegetable garden is a great way to conserve water and combat weeds! A great quick way to clean up the look of your yard, and keep it healthier too!
Mulching keeps your soil cool and moist, and can have a direct influence on yield. Pine straw makes for fabulous mulch, but you have to make sure you place pine straw near acid-loving plants. In some parts of the country pine straw is an abundant free resource, and is very convenient to collect. Many acid-loving fruits and vegetables benefit from pine straw mulch, including blueberries, strawberries, garlic, tomatoes, and potatoes. A drawback to pine straw mulch is that it can be messy,

They're ideal when you want a wide border that keeps grass out of the garden, yet allows flowers and other plants to spill over without intruding onto the grass. You're less likely to chop them up with the lawn mower.

Amazing crop from one cucumber plant..

It's just come to light that last year she had an amazing crop of cucumbers - 129 from one plant. The variety was 'Socrates'. One hundred and twenty nine!

Cucumber 'Socrates' - 129 cucumbers from one plant. Image ©Enza ZadenJust a quick one to tell you about Mrs Anne Byas, a gardener from West Molesey in Surrey on the southern edge of London (and only a few miles from where I grew up). It's just come to light that last year she had an amazing crop of cucumbers - 129 from one plant. The variety was 'Socrates'. One hundred and twenty nine! The previous year she thought she was doing well with forty but last year... 'Socrates' is a mini-cucumber for the greenhouse with fruits about 7in/17.5cm long, in a very attractive dark green shade. It comes with built-in resistance to the dreaded powdery mildew and also some other cucumber diseases. It thrives in cooler conditions, and produces seedless fruits without pollination. Ideal if you only have space for one plant. Anne sowed just three seeds, they all came up, so she gave two away to friends. The first fruits from her remaining plant started cropping in early June and continued until 29 November and she didn't know what to do with them all. "There's a only a certain amount of cucumbers my neighbours and I can eat," she said. It's also worth mentioning that 'Socrates' is highly rated in the US. In organic trials run by Colorado State University 'Socrates' came out top for yield. "'Socrates' by far, produced the most cucumbers per plant," said their report. Need I say more? Cucumber 'Socrates' was developed by the independent Dutch company Enza Zaden. 'Socrates' is available in Britain from Johnsons Seeds and in North America from Johnny's Selected Seeds. - See more at: http://www.transatlanticplantsman.com/transatlantic_plantsman/2012/03/record-crop-from-one-cucumber-plant.html#sthash.ZF5fK7uo.dpuf
