June Garden Report So Cal

Post  Chopper on 5/31/2011, 1:18 am

Ah, what a long cool spring we have had. And on the coast the June gloom might help keep things cooler still, but I wouldn't count on it. When I moved to Winchester people said, "It is so hot there" but what I knew was that it was the first time in my life I had central air so no worries!

I am way behind for my summer plantings, and just cleaned up from winter/spring but I am ready to go. That is the beauty of SoCal - there is no month you cannot plant!

What to Plant This Month:





















ENJOY! And let me know how your garden grows...

I truly appreciate your monthly updates on what to plant in Southern California.

And I'm thrilled that I can still plant potatoes! Friday evening, I pulled about three small servings worth. Very Happy

My only issue is figuring out where to plant more.... In the fridge are more seed potatoes, not to mention some store-bought ones that have sprouted.

Here is what is happening in my garden as of now:

Onion harvest - these are drying in the sun now(how long do they need to dry?), plus I have already used about 5 or 6.

This is the now empty squares(sorry I don't have a grid - haven't figured out how to attach a grid to the blocks but do use one to plant. The chard & kale to the right seem to be the only things getting chewed and are not a particular favorite here.

My 'bush' beans(the Nantes carrots for carrot week are to the right of the beans) that are climbing:

My pole beans & cucumbers have merged and grown off the top of the 4 ft trellis. The beans have not yet bloomed but the cucs have. There is such a jungle that I haven't found any cucs yet.

Note to self: DO NOT plant beans next to cucs again and give them both a higher trellis.

Two views of my squash bed. The taller one is a spaghetti squash, the shorter one is the tromboncino. Their trellis is 6 fy high by 9 ft wide.

There are severl spaghetti squash:

And a bunch of trombincino starting

Cantelope hiding in the shade. There are at least 6 that are soft ball size.

And my first tomato is about ripe:

We have finished off the lettuce - want to plant more-and radishes. Have been picking the Parisian carrots that we got a free package of - they are short but over 2 in in diameter and good. Harvested the 1st bell pepper and that plant which I bought from HD has about 6 more on it and is flowering again. Mine that I started from seeds haven't flowered yet.

There have been some ups and downs but I am very pleased with my 1st SFG garden so far.

Wow! Everything looks good.

My corn is looking decent even with the cool weather. Pulled off the first zucchini, and there are lots of little green tomatoes popping up everywhere. The blackberries are also starting to ripen.

The neighborhood raccoon ate my spaghetti squash plant - the actual plant!! So I was lucky to get a starter from my local nursery to start again.
