We made a mistake by scheduling a trip in September. September is not only our biggest season for harvesting, but also the month we have to do all of our planting for Fall. After mid September plants will just languish and not grow enough to be harvested.
Needless to say, we’re behind. The spinach and lettuce haven’t been planted yet. Not to mention the cabbage and cauliflower have been decimated by cabbage worms and snails/slugs. The Brussels sprouts and kohlrabi, on the other hand are doing fantastic, go figure.
By now it’s too late to just put stuff in the ground and let it try to grow. I know what I have to do, I’ve just been putting it off.
I’m going to need to re-start the cauliflower and cabbage in my mini greenhouse and then allow them to get big enough to transplant. I’m then going to need to build a hoop house over the bed they are planted in to help increase the temp until they have a big enough head start. Fortunately have a bit of time on Saturday to get this started. I just need to get on it!
