Late Summer Crop Planting in Vancouver

     There is still time for late summer seed planting in Vancouver of crops like arugula, endive, radicchio, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, onions, scallions, pac choi, choi sum, spinach, chard, turnips, garlic, radish, peas and carrots. With the hot, dry weather they will require regular watering.  The West Coast Seeds Planting Guide describes both winter gardening crops in Vancouver (harvesting food in winter) and overwintering of crops to harvest in spring. 
     The fund raiser for the garden is doing well having raised over $4,000 in just over a month.  We will need the construction, pruning and irrigation tools to maintain the garden.  Let's keep it going.
     This garden website is new and invites participation from all of the gardeners at Cottonwood Community Garden.  If you have a gardening story or an idea for a site page (i.e composting, medicinal plants, plant swap, Native garden, Asian garden, garden plant index...) please let us know. You can contact us at cottonwoodgardeningatgmaildotcom. 
     Below is the West Coast Seeds Planting Chart (You can download it from their website).  Happy gardening.
