Our GrowBarrels can keep on performing well into November with weather luck, and if fall seeding is done now.  Late July and early August is the time to seed the following:
  • Lettuce
  • Peas
  • broccoli
Most of the GrowBarrel participants got these seeds from our workshops, but you can source your own too. We got our plants and seeds from Egg|Plant Urban Farm Store in St. Paul. A bit later in the season, seeding of spinach, radish and other herbs can be done at the end of August.  Remember that handy grid you got at the workshop that has a schedule for transplanting, seeding and harvesting? Follow this link to see that page online.

This is another good reference from the University called Planting Vegetables Midsummer for Fall Harvest.
