Thanks!
I receive this info from Gardenate.com
Go there and find what they have to say about your zone... I think you just enter your zip code. They'll send reminders as often as you request. Great stuff!

I'm planting sprouting broccoli starts, that I started from seed on Aug 26. (calabrese). Also celeriac, and one other sprouting broccoli, different variety.



The celeriac is in the sun. It's really green, not yellow.

You have all that growing while my garden is going to sleep for the Winter. Is that fair? I'll have to start up my indoor Square Inch Garden (SIG) for microgreens.

Well, I do have to tend 12 months of the year, including making compost for both spring and fall. Wink I'm down to about 4 1/2 cubic feet of compost left. Sad

Just finished cleaning, amending and putting to bed for the winter the last three 2x4' beds. Also, emptied the red wiggler worm tubes and spread the castings around those beds. Still have to pull the tomatoes from their buckets and spread manure on the BTE strip. Back to work. tongue

Awesome!  I only have one lettuce remaining, a square of radishes, and a few mache.  Otherwise all is tucked in, clean and composted.

You starting the seedlings indoors?

I'm having a horrible time since the Fall turnover.  Nothing seems to want to sprout out in the raised beds.

I know it's late, but I'm going to plant more peas, kale, broccoli, and Brussels Sprouts today. (Also cukes, but they're for inside.) I actually have 2 blossoms and one pea pod on the plants I put in last month. Cool

I planted 3 kinds of cucumbers, sprouting broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, and kale, today. I also replanted peas along the back of the "salad bar." I tried an experiment and dug down through the leaf mulch to plant some of them. It will be interesting to see if they can poke up all the way through. geek

My planting for 2017 is complete! cheers I transplanted kale, Brussels sprouts, and sprouting broccoli into the "Salad Bar." I transplanted 3 kinds of cukes in the house and greenhouse, and I just told a lie. I forgot that I still have to dig up some zinnias for the caterpillars, but that will wait until next week.

Many seeds have a temperature range where they are activated to sprout.  If it's too hot or too cold they wait for better conditions.  They also often do not sprout when days are getting shorter.  They will become activated when the days begin getting longer and the temps rise.

I started everything inside in Jiffy pots on a warming pad under grow lights. The cukes will stay inside, but the kale, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli are now outside. I didn't wait for "true leaves" because my lighting is weak and they were already getting leggy, so I figured they were better off outside.

The last seeds I planted directly into the raised beds were sugar snap peas. About 40% sprouted. I just replanted a few days ago. I also direct planted some kale and broccoli a few weeks ago that never sprouted. Sad
