The fall months are quickly approaching and planting a fall garden is something that I always look forward to. I don’t always start my seeds indoors but I’ve decided to this year. I’ve selected carrots, beets, radishes, green cabbage, red cabbage, broccoli, peppers and kale for this year‘s harvest. My 3 yo is also growing a real-life pumpkin patch with her godfather and is so excited to see her ‘babies’ grow each week. Deciding when your deadline is to get them into the ground is somewhat of a guessing game. You want to be able to harvest prior to the first frost, but you also don’t want really hot temperatures to strain and possibly burn up your newly sprouted seeds. I am in zone 8b, and our hot temperatures last until about the first week of October (if we‘re lucky). After my seeds have been working indoors for about 3 weeks, then we will sow. My deadline for this year is Saturday August 29th. I’ll keep you posted with pics along the way with some tips and tricks for a successful fall garden.
