Summertime is a garden season, right? I don’t know about you, but that’s how I operated for the longest time. To be honest, I couldn’t even conceive of being able to do anything in the garden after the August harvest. While you might not be able to plant a full garden in the fall, there are some amazing benefits to growing vegetables from September on into the early winter months.
In today’s episode, I cover the vegetables that thrive in the fall, when you need to plant your fall garden (hint: it’s not in the fall), and cover crops that’ll help your garden thrive in the future. If you’ve ever wondered how you could extend your gardening into colder months, this is the episode for you.
