Fall Garden – What Should I Plant?

Fall Gardens are pretty short lived, so you have to choose seeds that have a quick growing cycle. Otherwise, you can buy plants at the garden center to have bounty before frost.

My favorite publication site is:

 https://extension.tennessee.edu/publications/Pages/default.aspx

Just enter “Fall Garden” in the search bar and all sorts of relevant information will pop up.  Great site with great resources!

Here are the seeds I plant for Fall:  turnip greens, kale, collard greens, lettuce, spinach, radishes, mustard greens and carrots.

I plant them in a raised bed that we convert to Cold Frame (made with recycled old windows to let the sun in) when the weather starts to get cold and frosty.  I will share more about Cold Frames another blog.
