Fall Planting Updated (July 16, 2011)

Quickie update on the fall planning. For me, it’s on delay. The heat is crushing anything I put in the garden right now. I need to wait for the 100’s to break first. I have a new found appreciation for Elliphant and those that have to shut down in summers down in the deep south.

I planted two rows of lettuce and carrots (one each) and nothing germinated. I thought it could be Murphy the Chipmunk, but it could also be the heat. Soil temps I have not checked, but anything in the upper 80s may be contributing.

I may need to start somethings indoors in vermiculite cups again to give them a couple weeks in the cool. Hopefully, the timing will get me past the worst of the heat. I will likely give this week a break and re-evaluate next weekend based on the extended forecast at that time.
