Hard to believe it’s already August.
The summer is flying by.
Despite being the summer, it’s time to start thinking about your fall garden.
This past past, I planted some seeds in my new garden that’s alongside my building.
How to decide what to plant
To figure out what I should plant, I used my Veggie Virgin Formula.
It’s a simple 4-step process that will show you what you can start from seeds right now.
What I got planted
Since the summers are traditionally hot here in LA, my choices are still limited.
I went a little crazy for me. I usually stay away from the peppers and squashes. They require more sunlight, fertilizer and attention. Definitely don’t recommend them if you are starting out.
Here is what I got planted with much more coming in September:
- Georgia southern collard greens (Cornucopia)
- Yellow summer crookneck (Ferry-Morse)
- Squash, blackbeauty (SeedsNow.com)
- Pumpkin Jack Be Little (Botanic Interests)
- Sweet cherry red peppers (from a friend
- Pepper (HOT), jalapeno (SeedsNow.com)
