How Does Your Garden Grow?

Gardening in the desert southwest is challenging, to say the least. If you are one who is ambitious and willing to give it a try... Here's what you should consider planting during the month of October:

In Zones 9 and 10, plant beets, bok choy, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, chinese cabbage, collards, endive, fava beans, fennel, garbanzo beans, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, mustard greens, bulb and bunching onions, parsnips, peas, radishes, rapini, rutabaga, spinach, Swiss chard and turnips.

You can also plant bulbs of garlic and shallots. Garlic takes a long time to mature and needs to be planted by the end of the month to assure that the bulbs will be well formed by next summer.

Plan your garden and get working!!!
