Believe it or not – now is a great time to start your fall vegetable garden.
In Texas, it is possible to have two vegetable gardening seasons because of our mild and short winters. The main perk of a fall vegetable garden is that we get to garden in cooler temperatures and there are fewer garden pests that are active throughout the winter. Many beans, root vegetables and leafy green vegetables can be planted in August for fall harvesting.
As always, understanding the vegetable’s growing habits and planting according to them is the key to a successful fall garden.
