Best Vegetables for Fall Growing:

Post by Sonshine on Sun Jun 28, 2009 8:12 am

This is from cityhomesteading yahoo group:

Best Vegetables for Fall Growing:
Kale - Nutritious leafy greens on productive plants that over-winter easily even in cold climates.
Collards - Another leafy green similar to kale but with larger, stronger flavored leaves.
Lettuce - Plant varieties bred especially for growing during the fall season or in cold frames.
Spinach - Not as easy to grow as kale and collards, these leafy greens will also over-winter.
Turnips - Here’s a quick maturing root crop that’s productive and easy to grow.
Rutabagas - Larger and sweeter than turnips, plant earlier in the summer for fall harvests.
Broccoli - Popular, productive and much easier to grow than cauliflower.
Cauliflower - Finicky grower, planting must be timed well in order to develop large heads.
Mustard - Spicy hot leaves, this is a very fast growing vegetable.
Mache - Very cold hardy, mild greens can be grown right into the winter months.
Cabbage - Grow from transplants (like broccoli and cauliflower) or start seeds indoors under lights.
Oriental Vegetables - Wide range of unusual varieties are available for fall production.
Escarole - A bitter leafy green vegetable that can be cooked or used raw as a salad green.
Endive - Similar to escarole with attractive frilly leaves.
Brussels sprouts - Start seed in early summer or purchase transplants.
Arugula - Fast growing leafy greens for salads or gourmet recipes.
Leeks - One of the hardiest plants in the garden, leeks can even withstand winter freezes

depending on how your cottage and property are arranged you might consider a green house (either free standing, or lean to style against a wall of the house that gets sun most of the day

We're planning of doing a fall garden this year. We'll mainly be growing various greens, since they do very well. In fact, my Dad always told me that collard greens were better after a frost. Smile We may try to do some English peas this fall too. We planted some this year, but it got too fast too soon so they aren't doing that great.

Our back garden (yard) is fenced in. We were blessed with a tiny greenhouse (plastic frame and cover) when a neighbor received a bigger one for a gift. We have that against a brick wall so it can't blow away Very Happy ......
Even tho' it is tiny and cheap, it does wonders. Even on cold days, it stays quite warm in there and this is where I start most of my seeds. The lettuce and cucumbers are in there right now, along with some flower seeds.
Note that any green house, no matter how tiny, will benefit.

Yes, a very good idea, 12acre. Thank you

I too would like to try peas in the fall. They don't like hot days too much and the ones I grow in the summer are in the afternoon shade.
I planted Perpetual Spinach last year and it grew all summer and all winter long! It is still growing strong Very Happy
I will see how many things I can grow and be successful with this coming fall/winter.

Thanks for the list, Sonshine.
