|Radishes from spring crop|
Last year, I shared with you the vegetables I tried for second crops.
I started lettuce, peas, cilantro, kohlrabi and dill.
I started them too late, and didn't have success with the peas or kohlrabi.
The lettuce, cilantro and dill did great though!

I wish I would have started a few of these a week or two ago.
But there's still be time to get a good fall crop.
Here's the list of the seeds I'll be starting this weekend.
I listed the approximate number of days from seed to harvest (according to the seed packets):
- Radish: 25-45 days
- Lettuce: 30-50 days (depending on the variety)
- Spinach: 30-45 days
- Dill: 40-50 days
- Cilantro: 30-40 days
- Swiss Chard: 55-60 days
- Peas: 70-80 days

Seeds germinate faster during the summer than they do in the spring.
Because of this, I suspect my times to harvest will be on the low end of these ranges.
I had bumper crops of peas, salad greens and radishes this spring.
Hopefully the fall crops will be just as abundant!
Are you going to grow any fall crops this year? What are you planning to plant?
