It’s September, and the kabocha squash are growing by leaps and bounds! They’re growing in a great, green, happy bed down in the lower garden bed. Right now they’re more yellow than their distinctive orange of fall. And, it’s time for a new round of planting – here’s what we’ve got going in the ground this month.
The seeds aren’t that exciting to look at in the ground, but we’re excited to reap the next harvest! This month, we’re planting Swiss Chard (60 days until harvest), Beets (60 days), and Radishes. These are all from Territorial, which is proving to be our favorite for vegetables. Here’s the plans:
And, in the upper bed, we’re tucking in butterhead lettuce (50-60 days) and mild tah tsai (40-50 days). We have some good recipes in our future!
And, still going strong – the parsley and basil. We’re eating pesto and fresh herbs as fast as we can to keep up.
