If you have raised garden beds in your garden, it is time to plant fall vegetable, especially if you like greens. In a small space or large garden, a raised garden bed tends to hold heat better, extending the growing season just a little bit longer. Give broccoli lots of sun, at least six hours a day, and rich soil. Always amend soil with organic and feed regularly all season long.
Sprouts love cool weather and will be at their sweetest in light frosty weather. These plants need room to grow. Follow the spacing recommendation on the plant label. They should be about 18 to 24 inches apart in the raised garden bed.
From seed or seedling, seasoned gardeners know that the most tender and freshest tasting lettuce and spinach come from your garden. Get started on fall’s beat salads by planting greens now. Lettuce will get nipped by frost, so try row covers to protect them in late fall.
If you have seven weeks before the first frost, which we do, then you have time to grow radishes from seed. They can handle frosts, too. Give radishes plenty of sun and water and watch them grow. ENJOY!!
