This episode includes a round-up of crops that mature in 40 days or less. We picked 40 days because there are very few crops that can mature in fewer than this many days, but it is still a short enough period (just over a month) that it is easy to plan for and execute even in the waning days of the summer. Consider this your last call for planting and get out there and sow some seeds!

Spinach is an annual that grows to maturity in about 25-40 days. It is a hardy cool-season crop that does best at temperatures of 60 to 65ºF, but can withstand temperatures as low as 20ºF. Spinach is intolerant of temperatures above 77ºF, these warm temperatures combined with long days initiate the plants reproductive stage, causing it to bolt or flower prematurely. That means that spinach thrives when planted early in the spring for a late spring harvest, and late in the summer for a fall harvest.

It feels like summer has arrived pretty much everywhere in the US, and our Slack group questions definitely reflect that. Your gardens are probably full of summer crops, and hopefully you're also underway with planning and planting for Fall. Many of the topics we cover in this episode actually start to turn our attention toward Fall. This includes our own Fall garden line-ups, including our favorite carrots and kale, the best way to store seeds, a debate about self-seeding crops, and last, a tricky question about onions.

Late Blight is a disease that primarily effects potatoes and tomatoes and is responsible for the Irish potato famine in the mid-nineteenth century. In this episode we discuss what causes late blight, how you might control it and what to do if you find yourself with late blight in your garden.
