From now until September 15 is a great time to plant cool season vegetable crops. Fall gardens are easy to grow, and it’s a delightful time to work in the garden – there are fewer bugs and it’s not too hot. To get you started we have cabbage, kale, broccoli, lettuce, Swiss chard plants, and seeds for fall planting.
Because they mature in progressively cooler temperatures, fall crops have a wonderful flavor. Much better than spring crops.
Cool fall weather actually holds the crops for you right in the garden so you can enjoy your harvest well into October. Fall garden care is similar to spring gardening, except you don’t have to water as much. All you do is dig in a little compost at planting time. If you don’t have a compost pile available, we have it in ready-to-use bags.
