Why Garden In The Fall?
When you are trying to decide when you should start your garden, here are a few reasons to consider gardening in the fall:
- Crops mature when cool weather is approaching because it will help provide sweet flavor, crispness, and other desired characteristics.
- Prices, in say the winter, are higher than they are during the fall season for produce. You will experience cost savings by growing your own crop.
- Fall vegetables can be planted where there was a previous crop and do not require much space at all.
- Weeds are less of a problem than they are in other seasons such as summer and the seeds germinate quickly in warm soil.
- Fall vegetables are nutritious and low in calories.
- Fall vegetables grow relatively quick and are usually ready for harvest after about 4 to 9 weeks.
