Looking ahead to the fall garden

Brussels sprout seedlings

With the spring garden nearly done and the summer garden beginning to produce, it's time to think ahead to autumn. We started the first round of brussels sprouts inside two weeks ago and this week we planted a flat of broccoli (with a few more brussels sprouts at one edge). By the beginning of July, we'll be direct-seeding the first fall crops (carrots), and so the wheel of the seasons continues to turn.

I'm surprised that you're seeding fall crops already. I thought that shouldn't be done until mid-August at the earliest. Am I wrong?
