I went out to check on my seedlings and look what I found! Almost all are up now and looking really good! Left to Right we have Romaine, Spinach, Cucumber and the remainder are Green Beans which are pushing up through the soil just now, and some Parsley, which I have no idea how it will work out this late in the year. This batch of parsley will go into pots so I can bring them into the cold frame to overwinter.
Last week however, I got really motivated and went ahead and planted the back garden with seeds! Kohl Rabi, Radish, Carrots, Celery and more Spinach. This space will be tented with plastic, and soon we’ll have the structure up for that to happen. For now, we have at least another month before any kind of bothersome cold sets in. After that, plastic cover will need to be handy but won’t really be needed until November I’m sure. That should also be the time we are harvesting most of these if not sooner. This back area is completely an experiment, we’re not sure what we can grow well in the fall quite yet, AND we ran about 3 weeks late planting, so who knows, but it’s worth trying!
