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:

Asian Greens, Beets, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Chinese Cabbage (bok choi, pak choi), Collards, Garlic, Head and Leaf lettuce, Kale, Kholrabi, Mustard greens, Bermuda Onion seeds, Garden Peas, Radishes, Shallots, Spinach, Turnips, Cilantro, Dill, Fennel, Parsley, Chives, Thyme, Oregano, Sage, Strawberries

I typically plant my strawberries a bit 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
