Plant These Fall Herbs and Veggies

Like a spring garden, a fall garden requires advance planning and preparation. You’ll need to consider the temperature, plant maturity, and nourishing techniques for the best fall vegetables and herbs.

Vegetables

Vegetables like squash, radishes, and turnips can mature in as fast as 50 days. This translates into planting the seeds about 6 or 7 weeks before the first frost.

Leafy Greens

Collards and kale both need to be planted about 60 days before the first frost. Planting just a little early never hurt anyone, so you could plant them at the same time you plant some of the vegetables that require 50 days to mature before the frost.

Herbs

Lavender, cilantro, and cu¬¬rled parsley are all frost-tolerant and need to be spaced 12 to 18 inches apart. They like lots of sun and well-drained soil. When they're at least six inches tall, go ahead and harvest them!
