Filling garden space vacated by spring crops with summer-sown vegetables will keep your garden productive well into fall, and even winter.
Cooler temperatures will make your fall vegetables taste crisp and sweet. You will harvest the best carrots, broccoli, red cabbage, beets, and kale after the first frost is long gone.
Broccoli is a cool weather crop and will do well in the fall or spring.
Carrots are another good option for the fall garden.
Consider making leafy greens like kale a part of your fall garden.
Frosts and early snows will improve the flavor of fall greens.
Colorful beets thrive in the fall.
Cut-and-come-again broccoli plants can keep producing.
Start a fall garden this summer and you’ll be able to enjoy homegrown produce at winter holiday meals.
