In this episode, we pick up where we left off in part I. In episode 802 – It’s all about the fall garden today at the Garden Farm.
Here in the north Atlanta, GA area, gardening is easily a year-round event, if you allow it. The problem is, most people we know around here who have a summer garden, quite by mid-July. That is such a shame. Some of the best parts about gardening happen after summer ends. Fall is great in most parts of the country for growing edible crops for several reasons:
- There are edibles that grow in fall that simply will not be happy in summer. Think spinach, collards, kale, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, chard, etc!
- Few if any pests and diseases
- No humidity
- Pleasant temperatures for plants and people
So you can see why fall is a great time to keep growing edibles. If you’ve never given fall edible food gardening a chance, make this the year you do. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
