Finished, at least for a Week or Two

June 2nd, 2015

This past weekend I finally finished planting all of my first flush of plants. The last of the tomatoes and peppers went into the ground so they could get soaked in but the few days of rain that was forecasted.
planting peppers
This doesn’t mean I’m finished, it’s now time to start seeding heat tolerant lettuces, radishes, peas, fall brassicas, and so much more. Work is never really finished in the garden, especially when you’re trying to maximize space and harvests while minimize canning and preserving work. I’ve been working really hard to get the timing right for fall/winter crops, each year I learn a little more. I must admit, it’s difficult to think about planting/seeding new things when you feel like you just finished planting the heat loving crops.

What are you planting this week and what things do you have planned for fall harvests?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
