I always use companion planting and I do all my planting based off of frost dates and moon cycles. I will be updating my schedule as the year rolls on and plan on posting a blog on companion planting separate from this quick note. Now, please take note that my timing is based off of our local frost dates first and then moon cycles second. If you don’t live in the SF Bay Area, your timing may be different. There isn’t too much to do in October since the weather is starting to get cooler and most things should be in by November before the first frost. Our average first frost date is November 11th.
October 11th: Transplant Onions, Lettuce, Leeks, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Spinach, Chard
October 17th: Plant Lettuce, Spinach, Chard.
