Mid-At: Are you planting for fall?

Post  sfg4uKim on 8/13/2013, 8:06 pm

Are you going to plant a fall garden?

If so what are you going to plant?

When are you going to plant?

From transplant or seed?

This has been a great year for direct seeding a fall garden for me. The typical hot and dry August weather usually makes it difficult to keep the seeds wet (i work during the day). But this year has been wet and all of my seeds sprouted! I have peas, chard, beans, carrots.

In between the rain storms I finished by fall garden today. I started a week ago and the radishes and broccoli are sprouting already. When I look at the list, now I know why it took so much work.

Radishes (Cherry Belle and French Breakfast) - 4 squares - 2 of each kind.
Carrots - 2 squares
Bush beans (yellow - Goldrush) 2 squares
Spinach (Harmony hybrid) 2 squares
Snap peas 2 squares
Cauliflower 2 squares
Broccoli 4 squares
Beets 1 square -- really a fill in of harvested areas
Turnips - 1 square fill in in of harvested areas
Potatoes - 1 square

I've started a few rounds of broccoli seeds, as well as some spinach, lettuce, green onions, and beets.  Found some clearance seeds at local drug stores - 75% off Smile  Unfortunately no kale to be found anywhere though.
