DeMieux endive in the seedling bed: move me soon, it says; getting big in here
No, it is not fall yet; don’t get mad at me for mentioning it.
Rather, it was really cool this morning (55*) when I went out to start working in the garden. When it’s that noticeably cool, then dang, I am hit by a feeling of panic again, that nagging suspicion that there’s something I have forgotten to do. What is it?
Perhaps I was simply undercaffeinated.
Anyway, having these greenhouses means one needs to kind of take your succession planting to a new level. I have never been a chess player, but I believe the theory of moving pieces around a board strategically has some relevance to the garden in this not-quite-end-of-season time. So I look at what’s occupying the greenhouse beds now: tomatoes, peppers, eggplants inside; tomatoes, squash, beans outside (in the future greenhouse space). It’s still really hot inside the greenhouse to transplant cool-loving things. But outside, someone’s going to have to meet the compost early if I am to expect a successful transfer of the seedlings I am growing elsewhere.
But yes, the turning season DOES mean salads are back on the menu.
