You might recall that we had some rabbit challenges in the garden this spring. They ate and ate and ate until we buried chicken wire around the perimeter of the garden to keep them out. Fifty cole crop transplants were among the many things we lost to the little rodents, as well as leeks, lettuce, arugula, spinach, and even a few tomato and pepper plants. But we really love our broccoli, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts, so I started more seeds a few weeks ago in the basement. Now, what do I do with them? Cole crops like cool weather, and it's been in the mid-90s the past few days and will continue to be in the 90s for at least another few days. And when do I plant seeds for lettuce, spinach, and arugula? They don't usually germinate if it's too hot. In spite of the huge harvest of heat-loving vegetables, this is shaping up to be a challenging year for gardening.
