How to grow fall salads

Cooler weather has arrived, but you can still grow some quick fall salads in your late season garden! Here are a few helpful tips…

The nights are turning cooler, the dusk comes earlier, and despite the recent hot weather, it’s clear that fall is on its way. But that doesn’t mean you have to stop gardening! Quick-growing crops, such as salad greens, grow very well in cooler fall weather.

This short video shares a number of ways that you can grow a variety of delicious fall salad greens before the cold of winter hits. Last year we had fresh salad from our garden on our Thanksgiving dinner table!

Get your quick-growing lettuces and other salad greens in the ground now, and they will grow quickly in the warm soil.

As the video shows, you can also grow salad greens in cold frames or even containers if you have problems with slugs or other pests, or just want to prolong your growing season a bit longer.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
