Here’s a handy Fall Garden Vegetable List you can print out and take with you to the fall plant sales. Plan your garden first, determine how much space you will need, then purchase what you need.
- Some fall vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts have a longer time to maturity, and should be purchased as plants instead of seeds. They should be planted about 6 weeks before your first frost.
- Any leftover seeds can be saved for the cool season you may experience again in the spring.
- Check the seed packets for days to maturity. If you are coming up on your first frost date, choose a vegetable that will have reached maturity before your frost date. Some fall vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, kale and collard greens can withstand a frost, and actually taste better. Lettuce and sugar snap peas are less frost tolerant.
- Consider where you are planting and how much space you have. Many seed packets indicate the vegetable is “container friendly”.
- If you are a beginner, start small and dream big. Some easy fall vegetables that are great for beginners include lettuce, spinach, kale, carrots, sugar snap and snow peas, and beets.
