Fall Vegetables

With fall approaching, now is the time to plant fall vegetables.  You want to plant your fall vegetables in far enough in advance of the first killing frost, but most fall vegetables are pretty quick growers and only take 10-12 weeks.  Some vegetables that are good in the fall are broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, green beans, kale, beets, turnips, and radishes.  Lettuce and peas love cool weather and will thrive in a fall garden.  Brussels sprouts usually hold up and live through the early frost, and parsnips and collards taste much better after they are exposed to frost, so make sure not to harvest it until then.  And make sure you plant your pumpkins, what would fall be without pumpkins!
