I just watched the August video. Mel has recommended that in August we use one square of our SFG as a nursery to plant seeds of cabbage, turnips, cauliflower, cabbage, and other members of the Brassica family. The seeds are planted directly in the ground, and are moved to nearby squares when the seedlings are large enough. It sounds like a great idea. I like fall gardens but often cannot find fall veggie sets at the local nursery.

Has anyone ever tried this? Was it successful?

August SFG Nursery Empty Missed that one

I missed that video, but what a great idea. We often have problems finding fall plants, too, and then one never knows what they might have been grown in so I prefer to start my own anyway.

Did Mel mention whether or not the cooler-loving plants should be shaded to get them to germinate or grow? Apparently the particular variety of fall spinach I sowed needed cooler temps to germinate, and none of my seeds germinated. I wonder if any other veggie varieties might have the same problem.

I got ripped off when I bought vegetable sets at WalMart in September. The spinach plants were on the verge of bolting, and were very old plants though they looked young. The cabbage and turnip plants were fine, though. I will give it a try in August 2011.
