After reading Rosa Salter Rodriguez's article "Starting fresh: Let fall be the new spring for your withering garden," I realized that now is the time start vegetables from seeds for this fall.
I planted broccoli, mustard greens and lettuce before I went to work yesterday. Four hours later, a squirrel had gotten into the pots and rearranged the seeds.
I moved the pots to the top of the rain barrel hoping that the pots won't be noticed there. After rereading the article about the soil temperature not being hotter than 85 degree I am thinking that I should move the pots to a shady area.
I would like to plant bush beans if I can find some space. All my vegetable plants are still producing so I have find new space. I am thinking about using the huge plastic buckets left at my home after a recent home improvement project. I would also like to start some Brussels sprouts.
I don't know when frost will come this year, but the Swiss chard I planted last year survived the winter and is still producing this summer.
