Cross your fingers - we are starting all over at Valhalla
After having a pretty prolific garden in San Francisco we are starting all over here in Grants Pass. We have had the soil tested and it is sandy like in SF but the big difference will be the weather. I have already learned that I need to sow seed indoors next year not to extend the season, but because of the dumping down rain at the end of winter. The plants need to be strong enough to survive a 2 - 4 day deluge and of course the wind in our valley. Anyway, I planted some starters but mostly from seed, so we will see what comes up. We have 3 more boxes to build and fill this weekend.The squash gets planted this weekend too. And we will buy the fruit trees this weekend as well. The bear proof compost bin is in. Oh and one other little thing - here we actually have seasons so we will have to follow the Farmer's Almanac closely to make sure we are planting the right things at the right time. Last summer got up to 110 degrees. Our constantly cool garden of lettuces in SF would not survive that. But the collards and okra are going to love the summer weather! For now - this is what we have sown.
