How to have an abundant garden in the fall

The end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of your garden harvest! Here are some helpful tips for growing an abundant garden late into the fall…

The summer garden is winding down now, and you may think of late autumn as a time to clean out the garden, clean and store your tools, hoses, and other summer gardening equipment, and settle everything in for the winter. But if you plan your garden right, you can actually achieve an amazingly abundant garden right up into the winter months!

Just a few of the crops you can successfully grow and harvest at this time of year – with light to no protection – include: artichokes, beets, carrots, celery, endive, lettuce, Swiss chard, perpetual spinach, arugula, radicchio, bok choy, kale, collards, mustard greens, parsley, radishes, spinach, turnips, sunchokes, dandelion greens, French Sorrel, red-veined sorrel, mache, claytonia, and minutina.

The short video below shares some helpful tips for having a beautiful, bountiful and abundant garden all the way into the late fall and beyond – even in Zone 5 and cooler climates.

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!
