Keep Your Vegetable Garden Growing Year Round

No need to limit vegetable gardening to just the spring and summer. Extend your vegetable gardening through the first frosts.

Here's the way smart gardeners plant radishes and turnip greens for fall use: broadcast or sow the seeds in broad, foot-and-a-half wide swaths. The carpet of foliage reduces chances of frost damage to things like the crisp radish roots and I've even found that radishes, leaf lettuce and turnips broadcast this way have done well when sown AFTER early frosts. The same plants grow better in the spring when seeded this way too.
