Fall Vegetable Gardening
Fall is an especially satisfying time in the vegetable garden. If you haven’t tried it, you’re in for a treat.
If you’re new to fall vegetable gardening, you’ll be able to hit the ground running with Cleve Campbell’s thorough and extremely informative article “Planning the Fall Vegetable Garden” from the July 2016 issue of The Garden Shed. piedmontmastergardeners.org/article/planning-the-fall-vegetable-garden/. Even if you’re a seasoned gardener, you’ll probably learn a new thing or two.
If you’d like to grow lettuce and spinach, you can start them in September.
