When the warm summer weather slips away, our summer gardens begin to slip away with it. When the gaps start to form in our vegetable garden as the cold weather creeps in, gardeners should fill them with all new vegetables in September for booming winter and spring gardens.
Replace your summer tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers with leafy greens like kale and spinach. Greens like this have a short maturity time and they can be planted later in the season. Figure out when your region will see its first frost, and plan accordingly. Gardeners can plant autumn vegetable gardens up to two weeks before the first frost to keep the garden running smoothly beyond summer.
The fast-growing vegetables below will make excellent additions to your garden. Don’t limit your vegetable growing season to just the warm months – extend your hobby well into autumn and winter to reap the benefits from vegetable gardening all throughout the year.
