plantings thus far - Florida cool season garden

Category: Heirloom Vegetables | Posted: Thu Nov 06, 2008 4:00 am

I thought I'd post a list of what I am growing - mostly so I don't forget =)

First Planting - 20 Oct 08:
16 plants Green Arrow peas
12 Cherry Belle radishes
12 French Breakfast radishes
12 Sparkler radishes

Second Planting - 3 Nov 08:
16 plants California Blackeye southern peas
16 plants Oregon Sugar Pod II snow peas
16 plants Wando english peas
10 plants Contender bush beans
10 plants Henderson bush limas
10 plants Provider bush beans
10 plants Royal Burgundy bush beans
18 Champion radishes
18 Chantenay Red Core carrots
Indoor Seed Starting:
2 plants Waltham 29 broccoli
2 plants Long Island Improved brussels sprouts
2 plants Golden Acre cabbage
2 plants Self-Blanche cauliflower
5 plants Lucullus swiss chard

Third Planting - 5 Nov 08:
6 plants Parris Island Cos romaine lettuce
9 plants Bloomsdale Long Standing spinach
6 plants Salad Bowl Green leaf lettuce
6 plants Salad Bowl Red leaf lettuce
12 plants Early Wonder Tall Top beets

The plan is to keep the radishes and carrots on a two week replanting schedule, all winter long. I also plan on planting another pair of each brassica (broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower) every month. I still haven't decided if I'm going to attempt those in my soil, or stick to containers. I'm afraid that if I plant them in my soil, I'll end up with some ugly soil disease buildup and won't be able to grow radishes everywhere - and I plan on planting them between virtually all my crops.

EDITED to detail third planting - and yes, we plan on eating well out of our garden all winter long!
