The key to harvesting fall garden vegetables is preparing and planting at the right time. Most fall garden vegetables actually need to be planted in mid to late summer to be ready for harvest by fall.
Fall garden vegetables include beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, collards, fennel, greens, kale, lettuce, radishes, scallions, and turnips.
Challenges gardeners face during this time is the heat. Making sure you keep your seeds watered and adding compost or mulch will help.
It is so important to start planting these in the summer so that they can have time to grow before any cool weather. To start your seeds off, you can plant them indoors by a window.
Just like with any plant in the garden, knowing what works best for your zone, climate and season will leave you with the best results.
