Introduction to Fall Vegetable Gardening

Fall vegetable crops

I tried to start my first fall vegetable garden late one August, when the heat of summer was still at it's peak.  I was shocked to discover that my crops didn't have time to come to fruition before the cold weather hit.  Yup, that's right, if you want a fall garden, you need to start right now.

This week's lunchtime series is a primer on the fall vegetable garden --- what to plant, when to plant, and how to make your fall garden successful.

This post is part of our Planning Your Fall Garden lunchtime series.  Read all of the entries:
