Fenton Friday: Time to Seed
I ran over to pick some tomatoes to bring to my garden club meeting and saw that the 'Sun Gold' and 'Yellow Currant' are still performing prolifically, as is my lone okra plant, which seems to be happier than ever right now.
On the other hand, the cool season brassicas I planted a couple weeks ago are not doing well at all. It appears that even with a cover cloth on them and the shade of a nearby bed of orange cosmos, that many of them have fried in our moderate late summer temps. I think the kohlrabi is pretty much toast, but I may be able to salvage a few of the broccoli, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower plants. I am visiting two garden centers for events over this weekend and may just buy replacement seedlings to start over instead.
How is your edible garden growing?
