fall and winter seedlings

Starting Seeds

fall seedlings 003

I planted a tray of fall seedlings a couple weeks ago (July 7). I have kept them indoors under lights. Today I brought them outside to start getting used to full sunlight.

Beets, Chiogga Guardsmark

Beets, Round Red Merlin

Beets, White Detroit

Cabbage, Pac Choi, Mei Qing Choi

Cabbage, Pac Choi, Win-Win Choi

Cabbage, Red, Super Red 80

Cilantro, Calypso

Endive, Dubuisson

Escarole, Natacha

Lettuce, Butterhead Green, Ermosa

Lettuce, Butterhead Red, Skyphos

Lettuce, Looseleaf Green, Black Seeded Simpson

Lettuce, Summer Crisp Green, Nevada

Lettuce, Summer Crisp Red, Teide

The beets and cabbages are right on time for a last planting of the season. I don’t know how the lettuce will do with the hot weather. I am trying some Summer Crisp types, which are supposed to be more heat tolerant.

I will sow another tray the first week of August (in a week and a half) with my winter crops that will go in the coldframe: spinach, more lettuce and other greens.

This week, I want to remember to sow some carrots and fall peas in the garden. Not sure where these will go yet.

I am using my Fall Planting Calendar to figure out when to plant. Here’s a link to it. I am using Nov 1 as my average first fall frost date.
