Sowing Fall Vegetables

Now is a great time to sow spinach.
Many vegetables thrive under the cool temps of autumn. New crops of spinach, Asian greens, mustard, kohlrabi, and turnips can be sown from now to early August.

Vegetables that mature under cool temps are mild, crisp and delicious. The finest radishes are grown in fall—you’ll notice the difference. Sow them in early to mid-August.

Flea beetles can be a problem. Protect plants with floating row covers or be prepared to spray the leaf-munching pests with insecticides.
