FALL PLANTING 2016

HERE IT IS! Permaculture Cubed's fall 2016 list of organic and heirloom vegetables from our greenhouses.  Most of the featured items are available as 6-cell packs in the early season and 4" containers from late fall into early spring.  Old Favorites & Reliable Standards will be from a mix of 6-cell packs and seed depending on variety.

FEATURED ITEMS FOR FALL 2016:

ROMANESCO BROCCOLI


Romanesco broccoli, also known as Roman cauliflower, Broccolo Romanesco, Romanesque cauliflower or simply Romanesco, is an edible flower bud of the species Brassica oleracea. First documented in Italy, it is chartreuse in color.


Romanesco has a striking appearance because its form is a natural approximation of a fractal. When compared to a traditional cauliflower, its texture as a vegetable is far more crunchy,and its flavor is not as assertive, being delicate and nutty.


It has been grown in Italy since the 16th Century.


CHANTENAY CARROT


One of the sweetest, this variety was introduced in 1929 and is a large stump-rooted carrot with a deep red-orange center, great for juicing or fresh eating. A good market variety that is smooth and refined in shape.


PRIMO CABBAGE


A very well known and trusted variety, Primo Cabbage produces solid ball head cabbage.
Easy and productive, Primo is a splendid cabbage and can also be grown at a higher density.


RED DRUMHEAD CABBAGE



A very special heirloom red cabbage hard to find in the US, with excellent flavor and a good keeper.  Deep purple color is not lost in cooking or pickling.  Waxy heads hold well in cold wet weather. Also handles heat well.


Slightly flattened heads 7" wide are very firm and dense.


SNOWBALL CAULIFLOWER


Heirloom. Snowball cauliflower's large 6"-7" snow-white heads are well protected by outer leaves. This reliable strain is heavy yielding and produces smooth white curds with a uniform appearance. It is powdery mildew resistant.

GOLDEN SELF BLANCHING CELERY


Brilliant yellow stalks. Robust plants grow 25" to 30" tall. Stalks thick and heavy, but flesh is tender without strings. Thick heart forms early. One of best table varieties.


MATSUSHIMA CHINESE CABBAGE

Easy-to-grow barrel-head type for late summer and fall planting.  Mild flavor, crunchy texture, like an "iceberg" cabbage.  Likes decreasing temperatures and day lengths, and tends to bolt if temperature or light increases.

Delicious fall salad green, very juicy, as well as for soups, steaming, stir-fry, and making kim-chee.

Fastest header we trailed-can be started later than broccoli and still get a crop.

SCARLET KALE


Color develops with frost. Very curly, very red.  More tender than the hybrid red kales you get in the market.


TOKINASHI DAIKON RADISH


Juicy, crunchy long white roots for raw eating, cooking, and pickles.  Excellent for opening up a heavy soil, unfazed by clay. Can share a bed with garlic or leeks.

We use daikons in all of our gardens with heavy clay or compacted soil to help break up the soil ahead of spring planting.

JOAN RUTABAGA


People are rediscovering the rutabaga.  Partly because it's related to kale and shares many of the same health benefits, and partly because of the flavor and versatility.  Sweet mild flavor and crunchy texture make these a kids' favorite for raw dipping.

Likewise a hit shredded into slaw or winter salads.  Kids (and we) also love them creamed, or mashed half and half with potatoes. Really shines when roasted, alone or with other winter vegetables.

Joan combines outstanding flavor with resistance to clubroot. Oh, and did we say thayou can eat those kale-related leaves, too?

PERMIES CHOICE 

We will select for you!  Let our permaculture specialists choose the best varieties for your microclimate, light exposure and space availability.  We base our selections on your history of stated preferences, environmental limitations and productivity.  We always provide a large variety - which is essential to having a consistent and bountiful harvest throughout the season - and as always you can veto anything in our selection by notifying us ahead of time.  This allows us the most flexibility when managing your garden to produce the best results in an organic and naturally-timed fashion throughout the season.

HAPPY FALL!

 

*Square footage calculation is based upon total area of available garden space actively being planted during the current season.  Due to the cyclical nature of high-productivity succession planting techniques, some areas may be unplanted for brief periods throughout the season.
