I have started the fall vegetable garden in Port Charlotte and it is showing signs of life. I grow my veggies in containers where I can better control soil conditions and moisture. I have a drip irrigation system set up that waters the containers for 10 minutes each morning at 8:15. I vary timing as needed but that is about right.
Also the herbs…
Cuban oregano, hot peppers, New Hampshire mint (thanks to my good friend Patty White in North Sandwich), something my German friend, Ralf gave me (I’ll have to ask what the heck it is but it tastes good), more Cuban oregano, more mint and sage.
Later in the week I’ll plant green peppers, egg plant and tomatoes.
