So far I am having a fairly good fall or early winter season. My mustard and turnip plants have done well and we have really enjoyed eating them; but now the aphids are starting to really get bad on them. My rutabagas were planted in a rather shady area and have grown more slowly because of that but they are healthy and forming some nice roots. The big problem has been squirrels eating the center growth tips out of many of my Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. I have finally got some decent lettuce ready to set out this week.

So far it hasn't been cold enough to kill any of my major fall crops even though we have had a couple of freezes. I have my hoops out and set up over my broccoli bed and will try to get them ready for my other beds this week.
