Fall Garden Beets
If you planned ahead and planted vegetables again in August, you should be enjoying some cool weather harvest right now. But, whether you did or not, it’s not too late to plant another few rows!

There are several crops that will do just fine in our climate this winter. Though we do recommend planting soon! Try these delicious garden favorites for a winter (or early spring) snack:

Cruciferous vegetables: plants in the cabbage family, like broccoli, kale and cauliflower, thrive quite well in mild winter temperatures. Plant them 18 inches apart to allow for full growth.

Root crops: Plant a few rows of your favorite root crop this fall for a late winter harvest. Carrots, beets, turnips and rutabagas are great options for the winter garden.

Leafy greens: Plant a winter salad! Arugula, spinach, lettuce and mustard greens can handle cooler temperatures. Just watch out for slugs and snails- they love cool, damp temperatures too.
