Summer Gardening & Fall Planning
Anyway, everything that's going to come up is up. I'm waiting for the broccoli to flower so we can eat it. I'm picking beans and yellow pear tomatoes and also some red cherry tomatoes. I need to cover the blackberries before they really start to ripen. The strawberries are here and there. The spinach isn't doing much - it's too hot, I think. So now, I'm beginning to raise some seedlings - INSIDE - under lights. I mixed some seed-starting mix with some composed manure and planted brusselsprouts, miniature lettuce and kohlrabi and we'll see how it goes. I know they won't sprout in 90 degree heat so I'm trying the only alternative I can think of.
