I don'r have enough space and place to plug in lights. Does get chilly too even when one heat vent on in there. I have rattan book shelf I use for my garden pots and Christmas things.

If you get muddy sounds like you need to get above ground if at all possible or more wood chips in your beds. Think you all remember my seed staring headboard need to plant some letuce or something in the box, my peas were a bust, got one.. Also have herbs set up in the kitchen and on the porch.

  • Plant in that sun room year round. If not enough sun in winter put up some shop lights w/one warm & one cool bulb. YOu can use headboards that are at least 4' wide or shelving to set up on.

Not really a outside porch, more landing at front door. Have sunroom. That new moon probably coming soon and garden is sopping muddy. Hope it drys  enough to plant. Would be nice for some help. This medical issue thrown me off. I was thinking on the squares in my 10x10. Tent trailer sold and more space and can go in either end of garden now.

Grow your K. & beets together they grow in different levels. Stick a beet seed then a K.seed probably every 4" then a beet........If you do a square instead of a row start the second row in front of the empty space between the seed like a checker board pattern of only one color.

Transplants you can do now for a couple weeks as the full moon is Mon.

Yep, Kholrobi chard, and you can grow micro greens and lettuce year round indoors. Didn't you say you hsve a porch? if so a shop ligh or 2 or more and you are set. Aug. 2 is the next new moon get them all in 2 days before the 31st or that week. If hey are ouside they will hopefully grow well. If not redy to harvest by your 1st frost get them covered with tunnels or somehing. Most will improve in flavor and can be harvested all winter. Go to Eliot Coleman in Youtube or get his book 4 Season Harvest to learn how he does it year round.

So I still have a chance to get some veggies that can harvest and put in freezer.What about Kholrabi?    Been stormy here overnight and thundering and still thundering and raining now.

You have been busy.

Lots of things grow fall/winter, spinach, lettuce, collards, onions, greens, carrots, radish, peas, corn salad, beets, kale, when it ges too cold cover them up.

Been awhile since heard from you.

I have been laid up with bad case of deep vein thrombosis, a big clot. On blood thinner since was in hospital Emergency a few Monday's ago. Did'nt get veggies in because of this and weather. What can I plant that will be alright into Fall/Winter, pre-started?
