Fall veggie crops
Hello, My name is Adam West and I'm the youth director at Aldersgate UMC on 202. This spring we created 6 raised beds to grow crops and take down to some of the local food banks that we support. We had a lot of success with our summer produce and are looking for ideas for fall and winter. Most of the knowledge of our team centers around summer produce. Do you have some ideas for what we might plant in July that we could harvest in the fall or winter?
- Plants that can be planted by Mid-July for fall harvest and later for spring harvest include the following; Beets, Carrots, Parsnip, Rutabaga, Globe Onions, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbages, Cauliflower etc.
- You can consider planting the following crops by mid August; Early Carrots, Leeks, Turnip, Kohlrabi, Early Cabbages, Winter Cauliflower, Collards, Perennial Flowers, Perennial Herbs, Swiss Chard etc.
- By mid September, one can plant Chives, Bunching Onions, Radishes, Broccoli, Cover Crops, Leaf Lettuces, Mustard, Spinach etc.
