There is, amazingly, still time to plant some tasty fall vegetables. And it makes no difference whether your garden is conventional or raised, or if you use pots or containers.
Even though the end of summer and the beginning of fall are rapidly approaching, there are still enough growing days in most growing zones to plant and harvest a few fall vegetable crops.
Garlic and onions for the coming year are best planted in the fall, but there is still time to plant veggies and greens for harvest this season.
1. Sugar Snap/Snow Peas
Sugar snap and snow peas are two vegetables that everyone enjoys munching on because of their crisp, fresh texture. And in just six weeks, you may have both of these tasty vegetables from seed to table!
In the spring, snap peas typically mature in about two months. However, the late summer’s warm soil is ideal for rapidly germinating both types of pea seeds. Plus, the arrival of cooler fall weather is ideal for their rapid growth and fruition.
Pea seeds should be planted approximately an inch deep with a spacing of 4 to 6 inches. Even while there are shrub types, most plants are climbers. A short stretch of fence or trellis will provide needed support for these varieties and make them much simpler to harvest.
Peas, as a last point, are a beneficial crop since they enrich the ground they are planted in. So, you are not only obtaining a little bit more harvest, but you are also revitalizing the soil!
