Two weeks ago I felt a cold coming on, so before it hit me hard I got very ambitious and planted a mess of starts in our backyard garden. And for once, I took notes on what we planted/what the plants need–because even if I put the little plastic markers in the dirt that contain all that information, I never go back and look at them again. We’ll see if this method works any better.
I’ve since been sick as all get out (perhaps because I did about 4 hours of hard garden work rather than resting that day?), so I never posted this.
Walla Walla sweet onions: 90-100 days from transplant (end of June/early July). Stop watering when bullying starts. Harvest when stalks begin to brown and fall off.
Oregon Sugar Pod peas: 64-70 days (mid June). Non-climbing. Water thoroughly, dry out between waterings.
Spinach: 45-50 days (mid-May). Water 2-3 times per week until established. Cold-tolerant.
Oak leaf Green Salanova Lettuce: 55 days (late May). Breakthrough lettuce (what is this?)
Romaine lettuce: 75-85 days: (mid-late June)
Broccoli: 50-80 days (check mid-late May).
