For those of you who live in the West, the South, parts of the Midwest and mid-Atlantic states, (USDA Zones 7, 8, and 9) we get down to specifics in this episode on the best varieties of vegetables to grow during the cooler months of fall and winter: lettuce, spinach, Swiss Chard, cabbage, Chinese cabbage, cilantro, broccoli (pictured), cauliflower, beets, snow peas, fava beans, carrots, celery, onions, garlic, parsnips, shallots and turnips.
We’ll tell you about some tasty, easy to grow varieties that maybe you’ve never eaten, such as pak choi, black seeded simpson lettuce, Danvers half long carrots, and Romanesco broccoli. What’s that? Give a listen.
It’s Episode 43 of Garden Basics with Farmer Fred, “Veggies for Fall”. Plus, we’ll tell you why now is a good time to give a final 2020 feeding to your fruit trees.
