cool-season veggies in the heat of Summer!
I noted back on the 1st of August how I'd planted snow peas and would soon plant bok choy seed. It was just about crazy to be out there in absolutely blinding Summer heat putting pea seed in the ground. And, then a few days later, seeding another cool-season veggie.
Well, it worked! For the 1st time ever - I've got pea pods in October. That is, more than just a tiny handful. The Toy Choy has mostly bolted but my favorite, Mei Qing Choi came thru.
TheyÃ¢ÂÂre not done yet, either. We've really entered the rains of Autumn and that's just going to encourage the bok choy especially. It has performed well at this time of the year before even when I've planted Ã¢ÂÂem while not under the influence of heat delirium.
Usually, these veggies go in about 3 weeks later when we finally get a little rain in late August. But, not this year and not henceforth for the snow peas! With a little luck, slower-growing Maruba Santoh will come thru for me as well. (And, that's a good thing since I plum dang forgot to plant it in the Spring!)
digitS' dinner tonight:
