Besides the community garden, Jim and I have a small plot in the backyard. During the Spring months when we were super eager to start planting, we utilized the space in the back yard with a few herbs and vegetables as well. However, despite this plot being in closer proximity to the house, most of what we planted went to seed without harvest (or was destroyed by sun). Now that we are entering August I have decided to rip out everything that went to seed and try to plant for Fall/Winter harvest.
According to the West Coast Seeds website (which is basically becoming my Bible), here are some great crops to plant in August to wield some extra food in the colder months:
Cauliflower (start indoors, transplant first week September for fall harvest)
Chives (after the 15th)
Corn salad (after the 15th)
Kale & Collards
Peas (before the 15th)
Radishes (after the 15th)
What are you planning on planting this month?
