Fall Crop Rotation & Summer Replacements

Post  WriterCPA on 6/18/2013, 12:19 am

This is my year for ambition. I've never put in fall plantings before.


3) My fall plan calls for planting some broccoli and cabbage, more lettuce, iffy on the spinach. Maybe some late beets. Better ideas?

1) In the fall do I put new plantings of lettuce and spinach in the same places or try to do some kind of rotation. (I rotate the entire garden annually.) -- I planted late and my lettuce and spinach got caught by the blast of heat in mid May-- the spinach is spindly with stalks without ever producing usable leaves, although the lettuce is now making an effort (or maybe just holding on -- just pull it out?) - go figure.

2) What can I grow in the lettuce and spinach spaces for the next 2 months before I put in fall crops around August 15. Bush beans? transplanted herbs from the garden center? Not more radishes! I have enough and I'm not that big a radish fan? Try different radishes?

Bunching onions, beets, turnips, and beans you should be able toget a harvest from over the next two months! You could also look into planting shallots and Egyptian walking onions AFTER the fall harvest! Happy planting!!

I forgot, I try to rotate my crops every planting (but if you can't it's not the end of the world)!
