Yesterday I wrote about what I'd been doing in the garden and I totally forgot that I planted some fall brassicas. I had a bed reserved for the quicker Asian greens and root vegetables. It has peas on one end of it. I planted one half of the bed up. Some Chinese cabbage, bok choy, Fun Jen, baby bok choy, radishes, and turnips. In a few weeks I'll plant up the other side.
I don't know how well this bed will grow things in the fall. As you can see from the first photo which was taken at 2pm, the bed gets a lot of shade right now. It does get some decent morning sun and a tiny bit of afternoon sun, but at the height of the day it is in shade. I usually plant up my fall/winter Asian greens in the rock wall garden. It is the only place that gets decent sun during the day in winter. This year I'm going to do it in this bed and in the rock wall garden. I might get way too many greens, which is fine. Or this bed might not produce at all. It will be interesting to see. I'd much rather grow my fall/winter crops here. The section of the rock wall garden that I use has my zinnias and I hate pulling them out at the beginning of September. This year I'll wait until mid-September to do it. I've always thought I started a bit too early in past years. Even at the start of September some of the plants have time to bolt.
