I sowed some fall greens in the hoophouse this morning, while temps were still in the 60s.
All Year Round butterhead 53 days — Pine Tree Seeds
Red Summer Crisp Batavian 48 days — Johnny’s
Oakleaf 40 days — Harts Seeds
Regina di Maggio 50-60 days — Franchi Sementi
Indigo Radicchio 69 days — Fedco
Broadleaf Batavian Escarole 80 days –Botanical Interests
Tres Fine Maraichere Olesh Endive 42 days — Fedco
Arugula — 40 days
Cimi di Rapa 28-33 days — Franchi Sement
Dan pulled cukes and thoroughly weeded the hoophouse last week, but then we had our heatwave, with daytime temps over 100°F, so I held off on sowing in the hoophouse until this morning (I did sow some purchased lettuce seedlings on 8/24 which are doing ok). Hurricane Earl will hopefully miss Maine, but leave cooler weather in his wake for next week. Keep your fingers crossed!
I will sow some spinach, more lettuce, the Rapa 2-3 times more, and maybe will try some Napoli carrots yet again. And maybe some mache and mizuna. What else should I try for late fall? Suggestions, anyone?
