Time for the parsley to stop taking up valuable "real estate" in the flat. Its going into the garden today. Also had soaked some sweet pea and morning glory seeds overnight so they are going to get planted today too.

I planted radishes, carrots and beets the weekend before last and all are coming up after many nights covering the beds. This weekend tomatoes and a few peppers. The following weekend will do the rest of the peppers, eggplant and cucumbers. The sno peas are really slow this year ,only two or three inches tall so far, I guess because it's been so cold. All the orchards around have lost 90% of their apples and our friend with the you pick apple and pumpkin farm is not planting this year because we have no irrigation. Looks like a brown summer.

My mother came over yesterday and we planted watermelon radish, bok choy, purple and white kohlrabi, red turnip, and my brussel sprout starts.
Hopefully over the next week, I'll be sowing lot's more carrots, lettuce and spinach. albino

I just seeded a few soil blocks with pac choi.  We will see if the weather holds for them to to grow a head before bolting.  The last patch direct seeded did not do too well so I am experimenting with starting them in soil blocks first.

I just seeded Danvers Halflong carrots and Flat Egyptian beets where the garlic was.  The idea is these will be ready for late October harvest in time for winter storage.

I am also pruning the broccoli way back and giving it a side dressing of compost and camalina meal.  It is making tiny side shoots now.  I am hoping this will push it to make a new central stalk and some bigger heads rather than start from new seedlings.  An experiment.

That is funny you mentioned this Turan.  My broccoli just did not do good this year, the leaves grew to a certain size and froze there.  There was a little insect damage and some dying leaves so I picked those.  I made some shade with a sheet when it got very hot and it seemed to help some.  I didn't have the heart to totally tear the plants out.  I have noticed in the past few days to a week that my plants are putting out leaves at the base of some of the plants and some of the leaves are getting quite large.  So I am hoping that I will still get those broccoli plants to produce.  It will be interesting to see if you can get a main stem again, but at least you should get the side shoots.

I am hoping to grow some carrots also as my carrot week ones did not make it.  I do have to check my weather schedule first though.

I was wondering Turan, whether it was too late to plant more carrots. OR beets, but if it is not too late for you, then it is not too late for me.
Today I cleared out a bed of black turtle beans, they were maturing and most were drying, so I just uprooted all of them. Seems such a shame to have an empty bed now.

I'm done planting for this year as my first chance of frost is in less than a month affraid...definitely something that I need to account better for next year.  Guess I will just enjoy whats still growing and starting planning for next year. My kids have already started their lists...lol.

I am going to try carrots, lettuce, beets, and radishes and cover them when my first frost hits.  After the first frost I have some time of better weather that hopefully those things can continue to grow.  Tomatoes don't make it past the first frost for me but some of the cooler weather crops may make it.  I know others have extended their growing season this way.  Now to put this into practice today!

 Both these are touted as good for fall crops and they mature in 70 days.  I will have frost in less than a month now but the hard frost won't come untill late October.  So maybe they will make it.  I thought I would try at any rate.

The black turtle are maturing!  Wow.  My Indian yellow are just started blooming.

 You should be able to plant various fast growing cool weather crops.  You know greens and radishes at least.  When does the Community garden insist everyone is done for the year?
