How to plan for a Fall Garden
Now that we are beginning to near the end of summer, it's time to plan for our fall garden. When you are planning a fall garden, it's important to find things that can thrive in the harsh climates as well as blossom and form during the end of summer and beginning of winter.
The trick is right now. You need to sow and plant the following vegetables by now later than the end of this month to have a successful harvest. It is always recommended that you have it anywhere from late July to the middle or end of August!
What are the best plants for autumn?
Kale - Kale is ready to harvest in the near Winter time when the leaves are about as large as your hand.
Spinach - Spinach is best when it is in full sunlight, and it will grow faster than most other plants in this series. Make sure to harvest and store properly for maximum shelf life!
Broccoli - Broccoli also grows best in full sun and have a ph in the soil in between 6 and 7. Make sure it is well drained and home to a lot of organic matter for the broccoli to convert into vegetables.
Carrots - You want your carrots to be slightly elevated because the higher the heat you have, the better and sweeter the carrots will grow to. If you grow these too late, they may not have the length or taste you desire.
Potatoes - Potatoes can grow practically at any time and anywhere. We put it on the list in case you're a potato fan.
