Fall gardening can be just as much of a joy as summer or spring gardening, and in fact, there are many benefits to fall gardening that gardeners wouldn’t get in other seasons.
In addition to the benefit of picking fresh vegetables from your garden beyond the summer months, your garden will attract less diseases and garden insects in the fall. Fall gardens are also less maintenance, with less watering and weeding to do.
