Gardening questions for story I am writing
Could be on discussions, I suppose, but I need actual gardening answers...
I am writing a story that takes place in Alabama in the early 1960's. I need to know when you would plant, month wise, and what, if anything, could be harvested in mid October. Is there a second cycle?
My character also talks about the seed catalog that comes in early January and the long nights spent reading it, mentally planning her garden. Did Burpee do one like that? Or is there a more traditional one? As you can tell, I am not much of a gardner, but want to get the details right.
Thanks for your help.
