This June and July have been surprisingly "cool". But the heat is right around the corner, at least for the central and northern valleys and east of LA. Are your sun shades already up or at least handy? Everything mulched and well watered?

Harvests should be under way now. A few ripe tomatoes, peppers, beans, herbs, cucumbers, depending on when things warmed up in your area. Not much to plant in the hotter areas right now, except maybe okra and black-eyed peas, vincas and blue salvia for flowers. Time to make sliced cucumber and lime juice for a cool, refreshing drink.

I may try a 2nd planting of a few summer crops. I just finished the irrigation system, so it's time to take stock. I also need to get my winter crop plans in order. Many of those need to get going by the 1st of August. Busy, busy, busy. Well, not too busy. reading

Planted asparagus bean seeds and dragon tongue seeds, serrano pepper, pattypan  squash, and bush cukes. Tomorrow I plan on pulling up the old radishes and planting Daikons. It may be too early, but I think someone here said the pods are awesome, so if they bolt I'll just harvest the pods and plant again. geek

Experimenting with 2nd season planting since our weather has been mild for this time of year. Here is a list of what's going into Jiffy Pellets tomorrow (the seeds came today).

Sera Radish
Spaghetti Squash
Candy Stevia
Lettuce Little Gem
Roselle Red
Beefsteak Tomato
Banana Pepper
Dill
Chinese Multicolor Spinach (Amaranth)
Yellow Brandywine Tomato
Purple Russian Tomato

This may be yet another failed experiment, but I won't know until I try. crazy!

July: What to plant in Northern California and Central Valley areas - Page 2 Empty Amaranth Chinese Spinach

Post  countrynaturals on 7/31/2019, 11:21 am

Cool morning and mild 10-day forecast, so I'm planting everything! Here is my Chinese spinach, in a planter on the kitchen balcony. The sunflowers are volunteers from spilled birdseed. I also got a small bucket of living mulch from all the sprouts that had grown there. Rolling Eyes

Hubby wants spinach for his juicing, but I don't like it, so this is our compromise.

We'll know in a few weeks. Could be the happiest surprise of the season or just the prettiest deposit to the compost heap. bounce

It is pretty!  Speaking of compost, I need to get some compost out of my old bed for my open spaces.  My Mother’s Day compost thingy isn’t ready yet!
