|My "St. Patty's bed" will be one of the first areas to receive a fall makeover|
|The entire back bed will be available for fall planting|
With that in mind, rather than neatly diagrammed illustrations of what will go where when, here is a list of when I can put in what, according to the SFG book (except for the rutabaga, since that isn't included in the book. I had to get that info off the seed packet). This is not a complete list, but rather just what I'll be planting.
|Could stick something here|
Broccoli: 16 weeks start seed, transplant out at 9 weeks (getting a late start, transplant by August 1)
Cabbage: 16 weeks start seed, transplant out at 9 weeks (getting a late start, transplant by August 1)
Rutabaga: 13 weeks (getting a late start! Planting today!)
Carrots: 11 weeks (July 18)
Peas: 10 weeks (July 25)
Lettuce: 7 weeks (August 15)
Spinach: 7 weeks (August 15)
The book also gives dates for cauliflower (14 weeks, transplant at 8), beets (8 weeks), and radishes (4 weeks), but I'm not planning on growing any of those.
|That broccoli coming out will make lots of room for something else|
