Plant A Fall Garden – It’s Not To Late

It’s the first week of August but it’s not to late to plant many Fall and early Winter crops.

Fast growing cool weather crops like lettuce, turnip for fresh greens, radish’s, kale and such still have time to produce before the first hard killing freeze in most areas of North America.

As for my tiny garden in SW Oklahoma hot dry drought conditions is the main limiting factor of what can be planted and expected to produce a Fall crop.

As of this morning my soil available moisture at the 4 inch depth is about 9 percent. This is not a good thing!

Plant Available Water values are 24-hour averages, updated each day after midnight.
Most plants experience water stress when less than 50% of the maximum plant available water remains in the active root zone.

Not from the USA. Please leave me comment about your home town and country.

Why is common sense so uncommon?

  3. We are into 8-hours-of-canning-at-a-time days of August currently. I’m sure my wife has Fall greens on her mind (as well as the 50 heads of cabbage that she has growing for sauerkraut!) As to moistures levels in our ground, with the daily thunderstorms this year, I believe that our seciton of West Virginia is about 99.9%. Hence, the daily flash flood warnings should the local downpour be on your side of the mountain. -Oscar

  4. It’s been a strange summer here. We have had 2 or 3 weeks of extremely hot humid weather with torrential downpours every couple of days, so everything is lush and green again. My Potager is like an overgrown jungle but it’s much too hot to go out and try and thin it out. Reporting from Canada.
