On October 2, I planted the third of four raised beds. This bed is located at the east side of the garden and receives full sun. Fern strawberries were growing in the cinder blocks and have been transferred. They were replaced with Crystal Palace Lobelia.
I’m planting quite a few peas in hopes of freezing some. Here’s how everything is supposed to mature:
|Brussels Sprouts||90 days||Happy New Year!|
|Peas||62 days||Thanksgiving – maybe|
|Romaine Lettuce||55 days||Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches|
|Bibb Lettuce||65 days||Christmas party salad|
The temperature has finally started to cool. This morning (5:30am), I could see my breath! I love this time of year. In Bakersfield, we can celebrate the fact that we survived another summer. Now I can work outside without melting and baking.
October 10, 2009 – This bed has most everything sprouting.
Note: The peas are up. I just didn’t grab a photo.
