It’s fall planting time! Here are 20 tasty cool-weather crops to try in your fall garden…

If you haven’t started your fall garden yet, what are you waiting for? In most areas of the U.S., it’s time to get planting! There are lots of cool-weather crops that grow great when the temperatures drop, and with the warm soil of late summer, they’ll take off a lot faster than in cool spring soil.

Here in Ohio, I’ve got my fall greens (chard, kale, collards, and beets) planted, and broccoli and cabbage seedlings are ready to go in this weekend. Lettuce and arugula and radishes will go in soon – looking forward to some tasty fall salads!  🙂

Here is a list of delicious quick-growing cool-weather crops to plant in your fall garden, along with approximate days to maturity – and be sure to check out last week’s post for some helpful fall gardening tips!
