The second bed from the west has been planted 1/2 way with fall crops – broccoli and onions. The eggplant, bell peppers, and serrano peppers are still producing; so they’re staying put for now.
Another bed is filled with pumpkins. I’ll wait another week or two then I’ll harvest the pumpkins and pull out the plants. Garlic should grow well over the winter. We use lots of garlic and onions; so I doubt if I could ever plant too much. Maybe some carrots and beets will fill that bed.
The final bed that had potatoes this past winter and cantaloupes this summer has now been turned with the hope of planting more above ground crops like broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, and lettuce. I would like to have some peas and need to noodle out a plan to get those in before things cool down.
Cool down? Is it possible? Tomorrow is supposed to be 108 and that’s more than enough to get these seeds off to a good start.
You can read Fall Planting Part I and see how the 1st planting is evolving.
September 24, 2009: The broccoli has sprouted! This heat is really pushing everything into high gear.
Don’t know why I haven’t recorded the broccoli sprouts.
