How to prepare your family to survive and thrive in todays uncertain world

It’s Time For Your Fall Garden

It’s currently the height of summer in many areas around the country. Here in Washington State we’re hitting our annual ‘heat wave’ in August.

Yet oddly enough, it’s time to start your fall garden. In some areas it’s actually too late!

So what sorts of things are good for your fall garden?

Broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, and cauliflower are good places to start. All of them are good fall and even winter producers. Depending on your region, you can grow these into the depths of winter.

Similarly, it’s about time to start some greens. Lettuce, mustard greens, spinach, and kale are all staples in a fall garden. If you put together a good cold frame you can have fresh greens year round pretty much anywhere in the country.

If you’re into root crops, carrots, rutabagas, and even turnips are good options. Onions work well too.

And finally, the old standby … radishes. They only take a month or so to mature, so you can keep planting them right up until frost.

Make sure to get stuff in the ground now, and you’ll be thankful this fall!

What are your favorite fall crops?
