Starting the fall veggie seeds…

August 16, 2009

Let the cool season vegetable garden begin! YAY. Got started on some indoor seeding today. Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, chard and a few other greens. Still have a few more varieties to get started such as cauliflower, cabbage and some other Asian greens. I'll go ahead and get a head start on the salad greens season by indoor seeding some arugula, mustard greens, mesclun mix and transplanting them very young in early September. The rest of the cole crops and larger greens will be transplanted outdoors after about five or six weeks of growth.


This week I'll be direct seeding some bush beans, heirloom soup beans, black eyed peas and some pan type squash out into the garden. Carrots and spinach will be direct seeded in mid-September along with the first round of direct seeded greens. Lots of garden prep to do folks!
