August seems to be all about waiting for it to be over; really, not much is happening with the garden. However, as strange as it seems to be planting the tiny seeds in such hot weather, it is time to sow winter veggies. I have lettuce sprouting already, and chard and a few spinach plants, and have already reseeded where needed. Today I put new soil in the wheelbarrow and sowed carrots. I used the old soil from the barrow to fill in one of the back beds where I plan to sow beets and more chard this evening. In September I will plant broccoli and peas.
