Am I too late?
I've been watching the weather and it looks like the worst of the heat may be over for this year (I hope!) It also looks like some rain is coming our way. I've been putting off starting my fall garden because I didn't think any newly sprouted seedlings could survive in this heat. But I think tomorrow night I'm going to plant my carrots, beets, green onions, and peas. According to the OSU publication on fall gardening I'm a bit late, especially for the carrots, but I will cover everything during frosts to buy some more time. Is anybody else here just now planting the fall stuff?
If I understand it correctly, the recommended way to do this is to dig little furrows, plant the seed, and cover with potting soil, right? Then keep it moist by watering twice a day? What does everybody else do?
