Etsy Feature Friday: Fall Gardening with Cubit’s Organics

Cubit's Organics Seeds
Back in the day (*cough* last year), I had no idea there was such a thing as a fall garden. My family only gardened in the summer and when I had my plot in the community garden, we were all kicked out by the man in mid-September. But yes, fall gardening is a thing! And now that I live in the south where it’s unlikely to snow in October, it’s a viable thing. So, naturally, I am planning on having a fall garden.

I’ve been following Cubit’s Organics on Etsy for a while (unfortunately not in time to order my summer seeds, although I did pick up some Detroit beets, rapini, and watermelon radishes to plant this month) so I thought I’d see if Laura would be kind enough to offer some ideas for fall gardening. Unless you live someplace particularly warm, fall gardening is different from summer gardening. The season is a little bit shorter and, obviously, not as warm, so you have to plant different kinds of veggies.

What kinds of veggies, you ask? Here are Laura’s top picks:

Kale

Watermelon Radishes

Unlike most other radishes, these are a late summer/fall crop. And look how pretty they are! How can you resist? I’ve read that radishes repel certain garden pests, so since I’ve had so many insect problems, I’m looking forward to planting these this fall.

Lettuce and Other Greens

Lucky for us, not only does Laura offer some good tips for fall gardening, she’s also giving away three packets of seeds to one Type A Housewife reader. You will receive Organic Red Russian Kale seeds, Organic Dinosaur Kale seeds, and an Organic Heirloom Lettuce Blend. Because I want you to get these seeds soon, this giveaway is only lasting a week instead of the usual two, so if you want to win some wonderful heirloom seeds for autumn, be sure to enter now!

How To Enter

 

  • One winner will receive three packets of seeds from Cubit’s Organics.
  • Entry open to anyone 18 years of age and over, one entry per household.
  • Open to those in the US and Canada only.
  • Giveaway ends on Saturday, August 20 at 12:01am EST.
  • Winner will be chosen via random.org
  • Because I know emails can get lost in the ether, I will email the winner twice. If I don’t hear from you within 24 hours of the first email, I’ll try again. If, after 48 hours, I still haven’t heard from you, another winner will be chosen.
  • Winner will be announced in a separate post on my blog.
  • I will check to make sure the winner did not cheat by entering under multiple accounts/email addresses. So really, don’t even try it. Cheating is not a good look.
  • Disclosure: I received no compensation in return for this feature.

Thank you to Cubit’s Organics for sponsoring this giveaway!

I would love to grow the watermelon radish! That is the coolest looking radish I've ever seen and would dress up a salad nicely. 🙂
