Time to Plant…fall seeds

September 4, 2009

Polebean I've gotten more requests lately to post more often about what to plant when. Planting alerts if you will. So I've created a new category on the blog called "Time to Plant". These posts will be short but timely and I'll do my best to post them more often.

Right now, you should be finding cole crop transplants in the garden center such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Swiss chard, salad greens and cool season herbs. Plant these now and keep in mind we'll still have some warm days, meaning you'll need to keep an eye on adequate watering. Direct seed snap and snow peas, lettuce greens and fava beans into the garden now.

Also, you can start seeds of all the cool season crops indoors to transplant outside in about 6-weeks. If you hurry, and do it this weekend, you can still squeeze in some warm season crops. Direct seed into the garden bush beans, black-eyed peas, scallop squashes, bush zucchini and pickling cucumbers.
