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.

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.
