Very good Vicky, sounds like you are getting sorted. my temps are starting to warm had a couple of days around 80f and everything wilted because it comes so quickly and non of are ready yet for warm weather. My seedling in shade house loved the warm days and have taken off. I must take some pictures and post. My broad beans are tall enough now to tie to the trellis. Snow peas are just taking off and will tie them up this week as well. William the cabbage sounds great, I've tasted cabbage with lemon on it in a restaurant, its very different.
William sounds good. Well the family that is still with me is eating up all the greens I grew in the pots. Which is good they are getting them before the bugs, just barely tho. He eats only raw foods and hasn't had much money coming in lately so glad I can feed them. The zuc slowed way down don't know if it was cause it cooled down a little or that I cut a bunch of leaves off due to the mildew. I need to go out and pick the beans, the toms take forever to ripen, I don't eat them anyway but they do. Think the cukes slowed down too. I was glad to get anything this year with moving, everything put in so late and hardly no water. Temps in the high 70s and 40s so nice out there. I want to get outside and enjoy it right now since I was sick in bed with no energy and dry cough all week. The young gal had an other yard sale yesterday today and Sun of this week not many people coming all broke this time of the month but I made an other $78 so I could pay the bills, got the property taxes paid with the last sale. So I can work my land woooo hoooo.
Vicky you have made tremendous progress in your plantings. I have seedling cabbage growing in the greenhouse which reminds me I need to plant more. I have found a new way to do cabbage and I love it. The wife puts it in the oven for an hour with lemon or lime juice squeezed over the top then real grated parmesan cheese on it and olive oil with salt & pepper sprinkled on top and turn it over after half hour on both sides......
Vicky the spinach I planted this spring I pulled the leaves off several times after they matured then it got hot and they bolted. I never have tried cutting the leaves off the beets but I would leave a couple on just to be safe for the time being.
Right now my beets are just growing in the blue pot on the end. Everything got planted late this yr. due to the move and lack of tilled up land. They have only been in there a short while so no using the roots yet. Haven't had to cover anything as it has been warm. Someone was telling me they are predicting 90s even in Oct. and a mild winter. Don't know where they got their info but hope it is true. I HATE WINTER!
Vicky, are you covering your beets for late crop? Mine will freeze so now is the time to start using them up. I was cutting leaves during the summer. My seed packet on spinach says to pull the whole plant, but that is spring & they are light sensitive so June brings on flowering. This time of year I planted new zealand types in the greenhouse & they do not last all winter since it is unheated, but it's a 35 day time frame. Chard will grow some, sit during winter & come again in spring. I am testing kale & cabbage inside but unheated this winter.
These are still areas of shame
