I got my main garden cleared out and I just pulled the weeds and tomatoes out of the tomato pots. I have planted some seeds and starts. Unfortunately the snails are still after the seedlings. But, I aim to preservere. My community garden partierre is weeded, I just have to amend it and add more fertilizer and keep weeding the rest of it.
I have planted
Livingston grape and Juliet tomatoes in 2 of my three tomato pots. I pulled out beefsteak , red cherry and a wild yellow tomato (sugold progeny). The third pot, I haven't planted yet
I planted some mesclun starts I had and cucumber, but the snails got all of the cucumber seedlings.
The bush beans (contender) I planted a week ago are starting to germinate, hopefully the snails will leave them alone.
The weeds have come back too.
My fall garden wish list
Large tomato ( Big Beef or Mortgage lifter depending on which seeds come up)
Beets, Detroit dark red (successive plantings)
In two to three weeks start seeds of the following for succession
Depending on if I have room the succession to follow
garlic (October sometime)
Onion,Texas Granex (October from seeds)
mizuna (late October to mature for New Year)
Mesclun (succesively every 3 weeks or so)
Mustard cabbage (Kai choy)
I am hoping I do this right this time. Earlier this year I planted everything at the same time and the Asian greens all matured at the same time. This time, I am trying to space things better so they don't mature in the same week. I am also trying to cut their numbers. I had way too many Cos romaine earlier this year and I did not thin them enough.
Beets, spinach, and a variety of lettuce are being planted in succession.
I am expecting I may be losing a few more to the snails so I will probably have to replant a few things.
Plant out the asparagus into the community garden when the weather cools. I started them from seed earlier in the year.
Hopefully, these plans work out, but if not, I will keep trying until something works.
