Hi, this is Justin Brock at Red Bird Mission Grow Appalachia. This week we are handing out plants and seeds for fall gardens. We are handing out broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage plants. Also winter pea seed, leaf lettuce seed, mustard seed, beet seed, spinach seed and many other seeds that can be planted in July and August.
The rain this week has helped us and hurt us. The past weekend are farmers market done great in the rain we sold out compared to the sunny weekend before where we had a lot left over. Its helping all are plants grow but, its also helping the weeds and the blight grow too. Everyone has been fighting weeds like wild fires pulling, hoeing and tilling trying to get their gardens back into shape. I’ve been reminding everyone about mulching. But we can’t complain its all a part of nature and we are thankful for the rain.
