- Use seeds for beans and squashes of all kinds and southern peas and okra. Onions and shallots can be planted now.
- Transplant with care - carrots, endive/escarole, tomatoes, and peppers.
I do have some southern pea seeds for trade, called Cowpea. These are fresh from this spring's harvest, less than 3 months old.
The rains and watering have encouraged Eat Your Sand's many edible plants to bloom and reproduce like nobody's business. Here is a little bit of what we are offering for trade this August. All plants are completely organically grown and propagated with love.
|We have four New Zealand kits to trade away. These cute little fluff balls would be a great addition to any garden, make a great pet, or make some good eats.|
|The purple-leaved cannas are growing extremely vigorously right now. I am expecting blooms any day this month.|
|I trimmed and mulched the lemongrass. The blades were getting too tall for the pots, making weeding completely unmanageable. Needless to say, the rabbits quite enjoyed all those trimmings.|
|The red cannas have put out some strong new growth since the rains resumed. I have mulched them and moved them around to more sheltered areas with more shade now that the heat is really on us.|
|The 1.5 year old potted Loquats are looking great. If no one wants to adopt these Loquats, I am going to have to make an orchard in my front yard. A tasty orchard!|
