Disastrous summer garden? No worries, you get another chance with your fall garden!
Garden redemption is here with fall planting! If you’ve never had a fall garden, you don’t know what you’re missing! I really enjoy fall gardening, with less heat and bugs, it is extremely enjoyable.
There are simply some crops that fair better with cooler temperatures, here’s a list:
Alliums: Garlic, onions and shallots
Cole Crops: Broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale and and kohlrabi
Greens: Lettuces, spinach, Swiss chard
Legumes: Beans and peas
Root crops: Carrots, turnips, parsnips, radishes, beets and rutabegas
Fall planting centers squarely around your first frost date, so it’s important to know when that is. Find out here!

If you’re like me, I get a lot of mileage from certain apps on my iPhone and Mother Earth News has a great one, “When to Plant” right here. I really like this app and it’s well worth $1.99 for all that you get.
