Here in the Central Valley, I will be starting winter seedlings Sept 10-15 (after mini-vacation) and set them out in Oct.  Don't forget the bridal tulle when you plant!  I waited 1 day and had a few green caterpillars last fall.

thanks , S. Today could be the hottest day of the year and the air quality is too poor to play outside anyway, due to a nearby fire that made the national news (Helena -- 0% contained). I could start seeds in the house, but I'm just not up for the game. By Tuesday it will be "down to" 105. Maybe then I can shake off these doldrums and get serious about next season. Right now it's all I can do to keep what I have alive, watering 3 times a day. Sad

Hmmm, I read that list a little more carefully and there are some interesting entries. Another crop of beans, hmm? Maybe I'll try it. My poor beans are exhausted from the heat and giving up. Maybe some fresh troops would be the answer instead of peas this soon. Thinking, thinking. geek

Bumping this for September. Must get my seedlings going or try direct sowing, especially the winter peas. Take this list with a grain of salt. The cabbage family, Swiss Chard, lettuces, carrots, radishes and other root crops, yes. Summer crops like tomatoes, peppers, and most beans, no. Has anyone started their seedlings?

Post  countrynaturals on 8/29/2019, 1:05 pm

The hot weather ended early this year, so I'm experimenting with another round of summer crops, mixed in with fall (not thinking about winter, yet). Here's what's going in the ground today and tomorrow:

Carrots -- Chantenay Red Core
Chives
Cilantro
Cucumber -- Crystal Apple
Lettuce -- Little Gem
Lettuce -- Romaine
Onion -- Texas 1015 Supersweet
Peas -- Sugar Ann
Peas -- Sugar Snap
Radish -- Daikon
Radish -- Icicle
Squash -- Spaghetti
Squash -- Zucchini
Turnips -- Japanese Baby

Some of these are risky, but what do I have to lose? Razz

Disclaimer: In a "normal" August, this wouldn't work. It would have to be a mild year, and not recommended until you're pretty sure the triple-digits are done for the year, which means probably never before the 15th of the month.

PS  I planted the seeds Aug 28th
One poked its little head up this morning. I started the tray inside, since our night temps are down into the low 60s now, but I moved it out when the beans started to sprout. I meant to bring it back in at night, but forgot last night. Mad Celeriac is up this am, too. That should be interesting. I didn't know it was a root crop. I hope it transplants okay. Shocked
YIKES! 3 years ago I had my broccoli planted already. I guess I'd better start winter stuff, tomorrow. Rolling Eyes

From the SFG newsletter:

https://squarefootgardening.org/2019/09/cool-weather-veggies-for-warm-climates/

Planting hint from this month's newsletter:

count back from the first frost date and then add two weeks to account for shortened days and slower growth – Voila!

So simple, so "common sense", so me stoopid for not thinking of it, myself. dangit

Yesterday I bought the Bonnie six-packs for the winter garden.  I prefer to do my own starts but kitchen re-do and total house cleaning of the resulting plaster and concrete dust is top priority.
