Planting Now for a Fall Harvest

An article perfectly timed to get us thinking about succession planting. Try it, you'll love it. In fact, if you never got around to planting a summer garden, now's your chance. It's always time to garden.  Picture lettuces, beets, broccoli, kale, chards, cabbage, beans, peas, be  harvested into early November. Imagine!  Plant what you and your students love to eat
Harvested potatoes leave room in the beds
 for lettuces, kale, etc.

Out with the cucumber plants, cherry tomatoes, 
peppers, etc., to make room for cool weather crops. 
And remember to leave space for garlic in October.
