to pull or not to pull..that is the question

Post  jimmy cee on 7/19/2015, 4:17 pm

I took one entire bed this season and placed a permanent row cover over it, clamped it down , only opened to water and general maintenance.
Now I have 3 broccoli plants that look good, even till this late in July.
Should I remove them ? as I want to start my fall crops.
Or should I ( as I am inclined to ) leave them to see how they do coming into the latter part of summer.?'

If you really need the space, how about a compromise - pull 2 (eat the leaves, of course) and leave 1 to see how it holds up?

Don't need the space, have lots of that. I'lll let them all stay , then report back on how they did.
As hot as it's now becoming, maybe they won't even get much further, however it is amazing what the full cover is doing this year.

First remember that imitation is the sincerest form of compliment and plagiarism is the purest form of theft.

Second, I always marvel at "fall crops". I guess if I plant some spinach and broccoli now they would qualify, IF they make it all the way to my first frost Very Happy .
