Plant Fall Vegetables Now!

Current temperatures might not make it obvious, but fall is not too far away and now is the time to prepare for your fall vegetable garden. Many favorite vegetables, including broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, collards, spinach, lettuce, beets, turnips, mustard, and radish can be planted over the next month for harvest throughout the fall and into winter. This is also the time to plant cool season herbs like parsley, cilantro, and dill. Onions, garlic, and shallots should be planted in October for harvest in spring. So don’t wait - now is the time to prepare your soil and get your fall crops started for a bountiful fall harvest.
