Fall Vegetable Garden...when to and what to plant?

Even with your garden being plentiful of summer vegetables, don't forget about planting to harvest vegetables in the fall. Extend your growing season and enjoy more homegrown produce in the cooler months. The fall months are quickly approaching and now is the time to start planning for that fall produce. So many vegetable plants grow well in the cooler temps, it is a great time to take advantage of growing your own food by really maximizing your garden's production. So don't put those garden tools away just yet...

For fall vegetable growing choose seeds for lettuce, spinach, kale, peas, carrots, radishes, turnips, and kohlrabi. For broccoli and cauliflower transplants work best.

Just like early garden planting, you pick your plant date around the frost date. Plan backwards from the average first frost date for your area.

For example:
Fall average first frost: Oct. 10th
Most of the leafy greens take 40 days for seed to table, but you can eat the smaller tender leaves anytime)
Come back 40 days = August 27th.
Then allow a few extra weeks for slower growing conditions in cooler climate. = August 13th
Then allow a few extra weeks to enjoy your produce, we usually start planting our fall vegetable crops around the end of July, beginning of August and this allows plenty of time to enjoy what you have grown.

Its so nice to enjoy those cool crop vegetables again during the growing season. Fall is my favorite time of the garden. Getting to enjoy my favorite cool crop vegetables along with the summer vegetables. Fresh lettuce and radish along with my summer tomatoes and peppers. Yum! It really is a great time to get the most out of your garden!

Now start planning your fall vegetable garden and enjoy those delicious cool crop vegetable later in the growing season! Happy gardening!!
