Late Season Crops - Roots

Posted by hidesert_windy (My Page) on

I received an email from Territorial Seeds today, re root crops to plant now for late season harvest. I have never planted anything so late, and with all this heat would never have thought of it.

So what all have you northern Nevada gardeners have planted in your veggie gardens this time of the year. I REALLY want to try turnips again since the quail ate all our early ones, and parsnips which I have never even attempted to grow. If I want to plant some now, what is the window for getting them in?

RE: Late Season Crops - Roots

I haven't had the greatest success with late season crops but I was thinking of carrots, garlic, onions, bok choi, cabbage and greens/salads since I still have seeds and a medium-duty row cover when the weather starts changing. Possibly even sugar snap peas and various beans.

For me, it all depends on when my husband turns off the water system for winter and I'm stuck using a watering container or the most inconvenient outdoor spout we have which is the only winterized one.

RE: Late Season Crops - Roots

I didn't do much of anything, I did put in a second planting of beets which we are slowly pulling, and I just put in some romaine sprouts. I need another raised bed by spring, one just doesn't do it. I had no room left but I did get in one (ONE) turnip which we ate two days ago :) It would have been nice to have some waiting to pull throughout October and maybe even into November.
