It is September and time to begin playing in the dirt! By now you have your location, size and ingredients ready to go. You might even have started seeds indoors. You still have time to get ready since our temperatures remain significantly higher than 100 degrees!
As previously discussed, the location of your garden is critical. Choosing seeds responsibly is another important part of your organic gardening adventure. Developing a composting plan is something else to consider.
Cool weather vegetables are the first on the list to go in the ground. As soon as the temperature drops below 100 degrees and stays there, you may begin!
Seeds to plant – beans, beets, bok choy, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, chard, corn, cucumbers,lettuce, leeks, melons, green onions, radishes, spinach and turnips.
Fruits and vegetables ready to transplant are broccoli, brussel sprouts, cbbage, cauliflower, celery, chard,onions, strawberries and tomatoes. Yes, there are some duplicates – it just depends how soon in the month you get them in. Most of these may be planted through November as well, but the sooner you get them in, the sooner you get to eat them!
