Now's the Time to Plant Fall Vegetables

You can extend your growing season! August is the month to plant the cool weather vegetables for a harvest in October. They include lettuces, spinach, cabbage,peas,chard, broccoli, and cauliflower. Add and mix a trowel full of compost to each 12" square to increase nutrients for your new seeds. For several days keep planted seeds damp with a shower or mist hose sprayer.

  1. Thanks Belinda! My new favorite thing I grew this year, 5 different kinds of potatoes. Red. white, Yukon, Kennebec and purple, yes I have purple potato salad or slightly mashed with a touch of butter and sea salt! It's a hoot! Be still my heart! So you can have red, white and purple potato salad, so American!
