Fall Planting

Late summer is a great time to start planting again. Many times there are empty spaces in our garden as spring and summer crops have ripened and are no longer producing, or in areas with plants that were unsuccessful. By planting those spaces with fall crops, we can extend the harvest later into fall and get a larger variety of crops.

Most plants should be planted around the end of July and first weeks of August, or a couple weeks later if protections like plastic tunnels or cold frames are added.
