Fall planting is almost complete. I’m a bit late but I hope to see some results. As expected, the radishes are up. The radishes pictured above are Jaune D’Or Ovales. These were planted on September 16 and the photo was taken this evening (September 22). These radishes are planted in the lettuce bed that was most recently the Lemon Squash bed.
I use stakes and old tomato cages to keep garden kitties (any kitties) out. Redwood stakes are used to mark the rows. Even though I write down what I planted on the seed packet and on my garden plan, the stakes are a handy reference.
Here’s what’s in the ground now:
|Peas – Tall Telephone||Lettuce - Merlot||Cabbage – Early Jersey Wakefield|
|blank||Radishes - Watermelon||Onions – Yellow of Parma|
|Peas – Tall Telephone||Lettuce - Cimmaron||Cabbage – Mammoth Red Rock|
|Peas – Tall Telephone||Beets - Crapaudine||Beets – Early Wonder|
|Carrots – to be determined||Radishes – Juane D’Or Ovale||Cauliflower – Purple of Sicily|
|Carrots – Atomic Red||Onions – He-Shi-Ko||Onions – Flat of Italy|
|Carrots – to be determined||Lettuce – Brune d’Hiver||Broccoli – to be determined|
|Carrots – Cosmic Purple||Lettuce - Iceberg||WILD CARD|
|Strawberries - established||Orange Thyme|
|Basil - established|
The beds are listed from west to east. The crops are listed from west to east with framing crops at the bottom of each list. Grey italic means the seeds still need to be planted.
The hot peppers in bed 3 (Serranos and Black Hungarians) are producing like mad and I’m going with the flow. This bed may be reserved for early tomato planting in about six months. I don’t know.
