This is the first year for trying to plant vegetables in August at Garden on Sherlock Street. It has been soooo hot that I didn't dare try until we had a cool down this week. I know it will get warm again, but I'm hoping our little break in the heat wave will assist in starting some "cool season" vegetables. I am also trying the ice trick where I planted lettuce and spinach (right side of the cold frame box). Plus, I threw a few ice cubes where I planted radishes (left side of the cold frame.)
If I get lucky and the lettuce germinates, I already have it in my cold frame box so I can slide the lids in and protect it later this fall.
I also planted some peas. Just to see. I pulled back my cantaloupe vine (which is done), pulled back the straw and worked the soil for the peas. I scattered a little straw on top of the seeds to help keep moisture.
