Planting fall crops

We're getting ready for Fall crops.
Although it was still 98 degrees today in the APCS garden. We just put a new thermometer on the potting shed, so we could torment ourselves by knowing that it is, in fact, 98 degrees (with high humidity, of course).
Today in the garden, we planted cauliflower, lettuce, and shallots.
Yesterday we planted some seeds~ 2 types of kale, brussel sprouts, swiss chard, spinach, broccoli, more shallots, garlic, cucumbers, butter lettuce, green onions.

We want to thank Darrel Voelker who has been volunteering in the heat to till the garden for us and map out the area for our new ramada.

Gratitude also to Dean Kramer and my 11th grade boys class who have been working hard to get some irrigation out to our garden. It will be so wonderful to have easy access to water.
Thanks Darrel & Dean!!
