|Sunflowers on my plot at the community garden|
I found two great resources on a Facebook post the other day and wanted to share them. I follow Gardening (in real life), who shared a link from the Gardening Jones blog- "Extending the Garden Season".
First, was a link on Motherearthnews.com, that site alone could provide online reading for days. The link was to a What to Plant Now map, a regional planting map, you pick your area (Pacific Northwest) and the month (September) and it provides a list of plants and other resources specifically for that region.
When I first looked at it I decided to pin it to my Veggie board on Pinterest. It was repinned about 6 times within the hour. That was specifically the Pacific Northwest page for September. Here's a link to the What to Plant Now page: http://www.motherearthnews.com/Organic-Gardening/What-To-Plant-Now.aspx. You can choose your region and month and go from there.
The second was an article called "7 Tips on Succession Planting". I like brief informative articles like this one. I'm just beginning to understand that planting can be done year round and I like it when people keep their advice simple.
