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?
