Plan and Plant Now for Fall Vegetables!
If your summer garden didn’t quite turn out the way you had hoped, or, like me, you never got around to planting one, now is the time for your second chance. Few people realize that fall is a wonderful time to grow many vegetables in our area. Warm soil temperatures promote quick growth while cool air temperatures encourage flavor development. Cooler air temperatures also make the experience a little more pleasurable for the gardener as well! Many favorite vegetables can be planted over the next month for harvest throughout the fall and into winter. So don’t wait - now is the time to decide what you would like to grow and to prepare your soil for a bountiful fall harvest.
Vegetables that can be planted over the next month for fall harvest include cabbage, kale, collards, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, lettuce, spinach, mustard greens, turnips, beets, and lots more! Click here to learn more!
