Fall is a wonderful time to grow vegetables. Gardening is more fun when you can actually bear to be outside for extended periods of time. This month, plant the following:
Chinese Cabbage (bok choi, pak choi)
Head and Leaf lettuce
Bermuda Onion seeds
I have also seen Brussels Sprouts transplants around, but I’ve never grown them and they aren’t included in any of the planting guides.
You can also plant strawberry plants now, and I’ve seen those around at the nurseries as well. I plant bare root strawberries later in the year.
Now that the leaves are starting to fall from the trees, consider starting a compost pile, if you haven’t already. Leaves, vegetable trimmings, (no animal protein or fat) and soil breakdown into nature’s perfect fertilizer, and its free. Compost needs moisture and needs to be turned to do its thing.
