Succession time

It’s long past the time for spinach, arugula and lettuce (until fall, that is).

Mizuna bolting

Mizuna flowers…Kind of pretty, I think.

Spinach bolting

The spinach has bolted!

Now, what to do in that garden bed?

My task for this weekend: pull the current crops out of the bed (compost them? or turn them under?), and replant. Perhaps with sweet pepper transplants and zinnia seeds. I was going to do cilantro and parsley, but evidently they hate hot weather too, and we already have plenty of beans and cucumbers.

I’ll post again with the final decision!
