What Goes Where

Below I have a sketch of what I will be planting in my new square foot garden.  Some seeds will be planted ASAP and others in September.  By the end of the weekend I hope to have two beds ready for seeds, in hopes that the seeds I ordered have arrived.  Thankfully, I have a few extra squares as I am doing some seed exchanging with Mimi from gardening in the boroughs of nyc.  I will need some extra space for these plants, which are not in the sketch. Planting veggies at this time of year seems so foreign to me, but I am very excited about it.  The frost date for my area is Nov. 20 giving me 17 weeks, which should be enough for all the veggies.  As I have never done this I am curious, how will the plants do as the weather cools?  Will I get the same yield as I did with my regular garden?  I will keep you posted.

    Thanks for the shout out Charlotte! The sketch looks awesome. Looking forward to reading about your progress! You get frost in Florida? I always assumed the south is always warm. Hahahaha.

    This is an exciting project, Charlotte! Here in Maine, there has been a big push for extending the garden season, ever since Eliot Coleman published the first edition of Four Season Harvest in the early 1990s. Last winter, I was able to buy salad greens from a local farm all season long; what a treat! Many of the plants you have planned love cool weather.
