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.
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!
