It's time to get going on our fall garden. I've started a lettuce mix, broccoli, curly kale, fennel, and spinach inside, in hopes of getting a better germination rate. It's been so dry here, no monsoon season to speak of, that it's nearly impossible to keep seeds planted outside happy, even with mulch. So far, so good with this experiment. We're probably going to build hoop houses with shade cloth for the stuff that doesn't transplant well, like root veggies.
