Fall Gardening

Post by Guest on Tue Jul 23, 2013 8:44 pm

I live in south central MO and want to try a fall garden but although I have always had a summer garden I have never tried a fall garden. I would love ideas on what does well in a fall garden and when should I plant? Is it time now? All ideas welcome and appreciated.

yes plant ASAP, plant short season varieties of things that are frost tolerant. Cabbage carrots, radish, potato, pretty much anything you like, other than tomatoes, and if you frame up a low tunnel you can grow root crops into January

in fact tomatoes just might grow in a hoop house like that...

Also if you like things like collard greens, mustard greens or turnip greens, they make a great fall crop. I'm not sure how soon it gets cold there, but in my area we're planting another crop of green beans, cabbage, collard greens, carrots, beets and garlic.

I planted late and am just starting to get tomatoes, bell peppers, and jalapeno peppers.

We have had a late garden but thanks to the cooler summer and lots of rain it is still going strong. We have so many tomatoes and peppers we are giving them away and we didn't plant until mid-July .

Wish I lived closer. Our tomatoes didn't do well this year because of all the rain. We planted more, I just hope it stays warm enough to get something from them.

I didn't even attempt tomatoes...my late green beans are doing pretty good, we've picked them twice now. I'm not getting enough to can, but we have plenty to eat on.

We planted some late green beans too, but they aren't producing yet. The ones we planted earlier died before we got enough to do anything with. The rain really messed my garden up this year. About the only things that really did well were okra, purple hull peas and various types of peppers.
We're hoping the weather will cooperate enough for us to get some from our second planting of beans and tomatoes.

I live in Missouri too and I usually have better luck with a late garden than an early one. Squash bugs and weird frosts are mostly gone by the end of June.
