Orie said early August is

the ideal time to plant your fall seeds for a great fall garden. I had pulled out what was left of my spring garden when I harvested my potatoes. I had tilled in Cotton Boll Compost to enrich the soil and let it set for about 3 weeks. Today I tilled again (to get rid of the crabgrass that had germinated) and planted Blue Lake bush green beans, Crimson Giant radish, Detroit Dark Red beets, Nantes Half long carrots, and I also found some onion seeds on the seed rack so I thought I would give it a try. I planted the beans in 2 rows, but I am going to try the scatter method on the others and see how that works. When our broccoli and other fall seedlings arrive I'll plant some additional items. Stay tuned
