It's been a little more than two weeks since my fall garden went in the ground. Here's a quick update on the state of things:
SPINACH -- Dead. Never got established. Must have planted it when it was too hot.
ROMAINE LETTUCE -- The best looking crop. Almost 5 inches tall.
HEAD LETTUCE -- Sprouts look good. About two inches tall.
CABBAGE -- After a shaky start, my two kinds of cabbage are looking good.
BROCCOLI -- Almost let the bugs get it, but applied Sevin just in time.
DETROIT BEETS -- Fewer than half the seeds sprouted. Jury is still out.
ICICLE RADISH -- Have thinned the sprouts three times. Radish greens are good in a salad.
TURNIP GREENS -- As I mentioned, I sowed these much too thick. I'm just going to see what happens.
PURPLE TOP TURNIPS -- Sowed these just 8 days ago, but sprouts look good.
BOK CHOY (CHINESE CABBAGE) -- Velly, velly nice.
