Planting Cool Crops for the Fall Harvest

In August the garden is overflowing with the fruits of our labor all summer long, but it is also the perfect time to plant crops for a late Fall harvest…cool crops that will give you some fresh veggies before Winter takes over. The cooler weather will not produce as large of a crop, but will be plenty to keep things fresh. Here is a list of vegetables that you can be sown directly into the garden. Make certain to keep them damp and add a thin layer of compost on top to help feed your new crop. You will want to check your specific region for any special instructions…consult your local nursery or garden book:


  • Arugula
  • Beets
  • Broccoli (Transplants)
  • Brussels sprouts (Transplants)
  • Cabbage (Transplants)
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower (Transplants)
  • Chinese cabbage
  • Collard greens
  • Kale
  • Leeks (Transplants)
  • Lettuce
  • Mustard greens
  • Peas
  • Radishes
  • Spinach

Sit back and enjoy the end of Summer, knowing you have a lovely bounty ahead!
