“I might plant some seeds today.” My husband looks confused. “In the literal sense.” “Oh…”
With the hot, dry summers we have here in Reno, growing cooler-weather vegetables like spinach or lettuce must be done in early Spring or Fall. I have always wanted to try growing some of these cooler-weather veggies, but have not been on the ball early enough to get it done. This year I finally managed to get some planted!
Here is what I did today:
I prepared the garden beds by amending them with:
Dr. Earth Organic 5™ Tomato, Vegetable & Herb Fertilizer 5-7-3
Master Nursery Bumper Crop (organic compost)
E.B. Stone Organics Soil Sulfur (to make the soil more acidic – we have very alkaline soil)
I planted quite a few seeds!
I will probably plant more arugula, spinach and lettuce in a few weeks to extend the crop.
I have purchased seed potatoes, but will wait to plant them in a few weeks.
I can’t wait to see some sprouts come up! Anyone else getting some planting done?
