It makes me notice how short the growing season is: 4 months, July to October. I’d like to have more crops producing in May and November to extend the season.
Note added: I remember that I started my garden planting very late last year because it rained (poured) from about April 15 to May 15. I lost 90% of my beets and onions seedlings because of this. And now this April is very cold.
Another footnote: I started harvesting lettuce at the very end of June and my last harvest (carrots, beets and chard) was Thanksgiving – end of November. I suppose that’s five months.
