When should you start your fall vegetable garden?
In order to have a crop of vegetables ready to harvest by fall, seeds should be sown in mid- to late-summer. However, the best time to plant your fall garden will depend on your location and the types of vegetables you want to grow. You'll want to start planting six to eight weeks before the first expected frost in your area. This will give your plants enough time to mature and produce a bountiful harvest before the cold weather sets in.
What should you plant in your fall vegetable garden?
There are a wide variety of vegetables that you can grow in your fall garden. We suggest snap and snow peas, kale, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, carrots, and romaine lettuce.
