Test Garden Update: Bill Nunes, Gustine, CA

bill_tnIn the central San Joaquin Valley of California, I’m still harvesting broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage and just finished up favas and ‘Progress’ peas. 

I usually direct-sow most of my squash, but I put about 25 in the greenhouse this year and planted out early. They didn’t enjoy the cool weather, but they’re starting to produce. Otherwise, summer will not arrive here until nearly the Fourth of July.

Had bad luck with peppers in the greenhouse, but there should be a few plants each of the three varieties I’m testing to report on. Most of the rest of the test vegetables will be direct-sown shortly for main season summer production—now that summer is finally here after an unusually cool May.
