veggies to grow? Empty Plants to Grow in Los Angeles

Post  donnainzone5 3/17/2010, 10:21 am

Where in Los Angeles do you live?

I'm in Culver City in a location that's generally fairly cool and breezy, and white powdery mildew has been an issue. Nevertheless, I had a bumper crop of tomatoes last year and highly recommend the Celebrity variety. This year, I'm trying an heirloom called "Big Rainbow." I also bought pole bean seeds, a mixture of yellow, purple, and green. I expect to begin planting in a week or two, once nighttime temperatures settle at around 55 degrees. For the first time, I'll be trying some slow-bolting varieties of lettuce for (possible) summer harvest.

In the past, I've grown 42-1/2 oz. cukes in my little condo yard.

I'ld love to get in touch with other SFGers in this area.

Hi Im in the Palm Springs area so much hotter down here. I planted many types of veggies and everything is growing like crazy right now. I posted some pics on Showcase of gardens under title "so far so good" if you want to take a look at my boxes. I have 3 4x4 boxes and growing tomatoes- early girl, husky cherry, lemon boys(?), and pear tomatoes. I also have carrots, bunching onions, radishes, lettuce, cucumbers, melons, sweet and hot peppers, okra, corn, squash, broccoli, cabbage, and a few other things. I haven't had any problems with pests, well except the occasional beagle breaking in through my makeshift fence. Post pics soon I love to see others handy work Smile

We just built our raised boxes and we live in Hawthorne. Did Broccoli and cabbage really grow that well here? We were worried that it would get too hot. Thanks for any help!

veggies to grow? Empty What Veggies to Grow

Post  donnainzone5 4/3/2010, 12:42 pm

I live in Culver City, not far from Hawthorne, and I think the climates are similar.

I plant my broccoli in the fall, and I'm about to harvest a respectably-sized head (for the first time). Why don't you go ahead and plant now, and let us know the results. If you're successful, I may change my planting strategy.

Perhaps we should pool our thoughts, since we're practically neighbors!

I'm not too far from you - I'm up in Burbank. We get a little less costal influence, but we get a nice evening breeze most evenings so it does cool down at night.

My biggest fights last year were with aphids and leaf miner. Last year's tomatoes were great, zucchini, bell peppers, and pole beans were great too. Corn...I think we had too many cloudy days last June and it stunted them. And the aphids didn't help!

This year I'm doing tomatoes, potatoes, sweet peppers, corn, zucchini, watermelon, garlic, onions, and a bunch of herbs. I'm going out to get more starters this weekend Very Happy

The old Western Garden Guide has a great vegetable planting month to month grid based on the Sunset planting zones. I took those vegetable that I like and want to grow and created my own grid. Then I just refer to that as I plan the garden. I am in Winchester, near Temecula FWIW

Hi, this is my first year using SFG method and gardening in general. I live in Glendale and am trying to grow the following: spinach, broccoli, cabbage, strawberries, corn, zucchini, yellow squash, radish, onion, garlic, bell pepper, snap peas and a bunch of different chilis. I am learning so much as I go along thank God for Mel's book and this forum!
Maybe we can post pictures and compare notes since we are all in close proximity. veggies to grow? Icon_biggrin

Sure!

Here is my garden about a month ago. Patricia's Garden

I have planted a lot more, and that corn got ransacked by a possum and I had to start more, but that is more or less what I have so far.

Sounds good to me, too.

Speaking of possums, my garden might have been destroyed too were it not for our rottweiler who twice came out of the bushes with the same possum in her mouth. It played dead and got away both times but I think it was making a mental note to move ASAP.

Here it is cowering in a corner:
