PLANTING IN THE GARDENS - FALL 2020 - PART TWO

PLANTING IN THE GARDENS - FALL 2020 - PART TWO

Having experienced desert/Phoenix gardening for a number of years, I've learned, that when I design/create new gardens or repurpose older space that it's important to work with/plant with a micro-climate in mind. And, because I do work with those micro-climates, I'm able to (most of the time) get a wee bit of a jump start on fall planting.  In my county, there is a planting guide (you should have one in yours too) with suggested planting dates. Ours is here

WHAT WE WILL PLANT THIS MONTH - FALL 2020

Fall is my favorite time of year - fall vegetables are my favorite - they are comfort food.

Some of the first things I plant are Cauliflower, Brocolli, and Brussel Sprouts and Swiss Chard, Sugar Snap Peas, and Purple Beans, French Breakfast Radishes. I plant purple beans because the birds "generally' don't see them. 

Speaking Cauliflower, I'll use the WHOLE HEAD - smother it with olive oil and garlic and then roast it in a cast-iron skillet for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

WHAT ARE YOU PLANTING NOW?
