I can’t believe October is upon us. Where did the summer go? If you live in zone 8b I hope you had a chance to plant a second summer garden in August and September. From now till spring it will be all cool season crops. Cool season crops are wonderful but there is just nothing about a fresh tomato from the garden. It took me until last week end to finally get all my September seeds planted, but even with the squirrels digging in the beds I see they are beginning to sprout. I’ll post pictures in my next garden update post.
This time, I will put a * next to the vegetable that October is either the only or the last month this year to plant them. This way, if it is a vegetable you really like, you will know not to procrastinate but to go ahead and get it planted.
Vegetables to plant in October for zone 8b:
onions, bulbing and bunching
