Bump.

Well, on Sept 30, I posted what to plant in September and no one caught it!   Embarassed  I deleted it.  This list of veggies makes a little more sense on what to plant in October! Smile

I found this article while browsing tonight:

Thank you for the reminder, I forgot the Bok Choy and cabbage.  I will carefully and gingerly (with my bad back at the moment) go plant some this afternoon  Very Happy

Finally got the 3 types of kale, Swiss chard, cabbages and snow peas planted today. I love having grids and making it so easy to plant! I have to get the tulle over the TTs before we head out to keep the white butterfly off the greens.
