What to plant in my garden in September?
There are many questions when creating a garden, whether it is family, school, urban, or community, since it is the same, the only thing that varies is the place where our garden will be found.
To start in the world of cultivation, we must first know what a vegetable garden is since a vegetable garden is an area of land destined for the cultivation of vegetables, and herbs of all kinds, although this is conditioned by the size, the type, the irrigation system, and the climate that our garden has, especially the climate that is present depends on the type of plantation since the same plants do not grow in the different seasons of the year and we will talk about that in this article.
The orchards are spaces that must be constantly attended to by external agents that affect the state of the plants and/or fruits that are about to be harvested.
This is a daily work that the crop demands and is that depending on what you want to cultivate, the garden may need to be in closed or open spaces, and before this, whoever cultivates it, must adjust. Also, the irrigation system, if it is automatic or manual if the crop requires a large amount of water throughout the day or not.
The orchards have a very specific difference from the farms and that is that the farms are spaces of mass production and the orchards are generally smaller spaces that produce a prudent amount for local or personal consumption.
Among the types of crops, as mentioned above, are urban, school, and family.
The idea of urban farming originated in 2008 in an old American city when people decided to bring the country’s atmosphere to the city. This idea as time went by, was causing more initiative on the part of people with the intention of installing cultivation beds in different spaces in the area; allowing to supply and support different communities such as schools, restaurants, among others.
Other times, these spaces for urban cultivation are promoted by government entities with the intention of promoting food diversification, and as an example, school cultivation, as its name indicates, is established in schools and September is a very propitious date. to start a school garden as it is the beginning of a new school day.
With this type of initiative, children are educated and are related to the environment, good nutrition, and agriculture, such as the family garden that is located in the houses, is created and cultivated with the intention of supplying a self-consumption.
Regardless of the type of orchard that is going to be cultivated, the care depending on the climatic zone, are the same and that is that September is a date in which the summer harvests are collected and those that will be for the autumn-winter are prepared.
On these dates, plants that include short cycles are grown for what will be in the autumn and winter season or those that can remain throughout the year. When preparing this crop, it must be taken into account that both the high summer temperatures and the low and winter rains can be combined at the time.
So, if you don’t know what to sow in your garden in the month of September, here are several options, such as garlic, peas (avoiding contact with garlic, although it is compatible with lettuce, carrots, radish, and cabbage), carrots (although these can be sown throughout the year avoiding frost), broad beans (grow them with vegetables from the same family, lettuce, carrots, radish), chard, spinach (ideal for these dates and remember that these are sown in groups of 3 and 4 seeds approximately 20 centimeters apart), radish, lettuce, celery, cabbage and cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, onion, mint, calendula, and borage.
