Planting Brooklyn’s Fall Garden of Carrots, Yellow Beans, Green Beans, and Chives!

We built the kids a 3×3 flower bed when we first started and this year we gave them an additional 4×4 bed for veggies. Their spring bed didn’t do so well, but they’ve learned from their mistakes and are ready to start over with a fall bed of carrots, beans, and chives.

We’ll be planting more of this as well as other fall crops like cabbage, broccoli, Chinese cabbage, spinach, kale, garlic, peas, and beans over the coming weeks.
