Where the turnips were harvested I planted garlic, one of my garden favorites. Now I want some rain! My curly kale is big and healthy, and needs a first harvest. I have given away armloads of beautiful basil, and still have more than I can handle.
My fall failure: lactino kale. I planted two rows, and all but two plants have died from damping off (rotting at the base). Clearly I have a problem in this little part of the garden. It is late, and though I plan to plant a row in a new spot, it has been too dry. I need to bite the bullet and drag out the hose to soak the bed and get the planting done.
