5 Best Crops to Plant in the Fall
Posted on: Monday, October 9, 2017
The weather may be cooling and your summer crops may have reached their end, but there are still seeds to plant.
Fall has distinct planting benefits. The season’s cooler air temperatures are easier on both plants and gardeners. Not to mention the soil is still warm, allowing roots to grow until the ground freezes.
According to Better Homes & Garden, fall planting begins now, and ends about six weeks before your area gets hit with a hard frost, which usually happens in late September or early October.
5 Varieties to Plant in the Fall
- Spring Bulbs
- Cool-Season Vegetables
