What Transplants Are We Planting Now?

I get asked occasionally if you can still plant the things we bring to market as transplants. At this time of year this would be things like broccoli, kohlrabi, cabbage, peas, beans, cilantro, kale and herbs. The answer is emphatically yes. We are planting what we bring.

So you may ask, why don't the local garden centers still offer these same transplants. The answer is...

The local garden centers have not educated their customers about fall gardening and extending the season.

If you want broccoli and kohlrabi all season long you are going to want to plant 3-4 crops.

If you want later cabbage for storage, you are going to want to plant around the first of July.

It is the third week in June and this week we are planting transplants of...

  1. Kale
  2. Broccoli
  3. Kohlrabi
  4. Storage Cabbage
  5. Basil
  6. Chives
  7. Parsley
