Yesterday morning, when I should’ve been working, I spent hours salivating over the high mowing seed offering of warm season vegetables. I was searching for tomatoes but I managed to also find some interesting cucumbers, beans and spinach. Seeds for Picolino (cucumber), Blue Lake (bean) and Ping Tung (eggplant) will now be arriving in a few days along with my Brandywine, Geen Zebra, Yellow Pear, Peachwine and Indigo Rose. I had a moment of panic after I confirmed my order because I’m still cloudy on when to plant certain vegetables. The soil temp, amount of sun light hours and of course temperature are the key factors. The challenge is keeping it all straight in Santa Monica where we’ve had 80 degree January days and we’ll likely
have a June filled with gloom and 60 degree temps. So, for those of you who get confused like me I have this link to a guide of what to plant when in different areas of California. Enjoy and get gardening!
