is it too late to start SFG?

Post  Aub on 8/7/2010, 11:21 pm

I want to start a SFG but I worry it may be too late. If I get everything put together tomorrow do you think it will be ok?
I have a regular in-the-ground garden with tomatoes, peppers, zukes, crook-necks, and strawberries.
I got some seeds (broc, bush beans, spinach, cucumbers) and I started those on the porch about 2 weeks ago. I also started some brussel sprouts today.
I would like to put my 2nd season in to a SFG but I'm not sure what order to plant them in. I'm doing a 4x8 SFG.

Thanks!

It depends on your zone, but I think you would be ok to put in cool-weather crops like broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, also carrots, kale, swiss chard.
It can't hurt.

What do I do about my perennial stuff like Asparagus and my Garlic and Shallots? My Asparagus is in the ground now. Can I dig it up and put it in a Square?

Aub:

Asparagus roots run very deep. Depending on how long they have been in the garden the roots can be as deep as 12 feet. If you have just planted them they can be transplanted. If they have been in the ground for some time I would leave them in place. A Google search will produce a world of info.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.

I just put the asparagus in this season so I should be able to get them up fairly easily, I think.

Thanks!
