Even though it just won't rain (we did get a pretty good rain yesterday...but we need so much more!!) and we are still dealing with temps well over 100 degrees.....it is time to get those fall crops in the ground. Sunday evening we did one of the first (of many to come) fall plantings. Swiss chard, tuscan kale, kohlrabi, chioggia beets, collards and a test planting of carrots were sowed.
We are also waiting on three plantings of beans (yellow, purple, green and dragon lingerie). Plants have been set out including pac choi, chinese cabbage, tomatoes, eggplants, broccoli, cabbage and brussel sprouts. Plantings of turnips and curly leaf kale are in along with gator perpetual spinach, red ace beets, golden beets and golden chard.
In the next few weeks we will be completing our transition as the beds move from warm weather dominated to cool weather dominated crops........now if only it would feel like fall!!!
