It's September how's your garden doing?

Post  No_Such_Reality on 9/13/2013, 2:07 pm

So it's September and our Southern California board has been a little slow.

How's everyone's garden doing in SoCal?  We're heading into our Fall planting time which is when we get break out all our cool season crops.

September planting is a little light with the following recommendations:
Beans, Bush
Beets
Broccoli
Bussel Sprouts
Carrots
Celery
Leeks
Lettuce
Peas
Spinach
Squash, summer

October kicks up a little more into the cool season:
Beets
Broccoli
Bussel Sprouts
Cabbage
Carrots
Cauliflower
Celery
Leeks
Lettuce
Onions Bunching
Onions/Garlic sets
Parsley
Peas
Spinach


This past weekend I just finish my new SFG boxes and mixing my MM.  Used a combination of home made compost, store manure compost, home vermicompost and a couple other store blends.   I planted carrots, radishes, Lettuces (romaines, tom thumbs, and lose cutting lettuces).  I also pushed the envelope trying to squeeze in a last summer patty pan squash, beets and put in a brussel sprout.  I didn't get a lot of new space, two small 3'x3' and a 2x5'  Still have space left in the one 3x3 I'm thinking peas, celery, broccoli, and maybe a square or two of garlic.

The good news is a couple of the beets and radishes are already up.

The bad news, my neighborhood opossum already is hunting for worms in the bin.

Still getting:

A few peas

Beans!

Lettuce and salad greens

A couple of cukes (not "cuke's")

Zukes (not "zuke's")

Corn (just coming in)

Strawberries

Tomatoes (oh, woe is me if we get a frost soon); am trimming foliage to allow more sunlight to reach the vines)
