It was like opening up a gift. Seems I get to plant some lettuce this month. Good! Back to good salads again. I am planting some bib lettuce, Vivian (Romaine like), and Iceberg.
I know, I know. Iceberg doesn't have many nutrients. But, The Lad likes it best. I can mix it in salad so we get nutrients with the other lettuces. Besides, it really IS good on a BLT sandwich.
I will be planting heartier greens, like kale, mustard greens, and large ribbed Swiss chard. Next month I get to plant a lot more greens. I have chard in every color.
I also have celery, Lemon cucumbers, turnips, and Bok Choi to plant. We are going to be so healthy! LOL.
I have also decided to plant some sweet corn. It takes 73 days to harvest. We can get corn for Halloween! Maybe I can make some corn relish. Oh! How! Yummy! My Pasilla peppers will be ready then, too.
There are a few repeats from this month that will be going in the ground too. Like some more beans...Red and Black. Plus broccoli.
Another thing I have decided to do is to start some eggplant seeds in the house to go in the ground next month. Just to see if it helps me get more eggplant. Plus...which does better.
The thing I need to do now, is build more beds, fence them in, and fill them with compost. I might be able to get some free wood...so I need to check that out. Or...I can just till up dirt and put a fence around it. We shall see.
I feel this is urgent, because NEXT month is when I will have many more seeds to plant. That is...if I get the beds built. And fenced. And filled. We will do what we can.
I just wanted to end this post by saying...BFF, this post's for you!
