Want to become part of the movement to be planting and using your own gardening for your food? Well, join the club! This has definitely become a popular tactic for most D.C., Maryland and Virginia residents. The great news is you get to see all your hard work come to life and then you get to eat it! Here are our favorite and easiest vegetable to add to your garden this fall:
Beets: These are the perfect vegetables for your fall garden because everyone loves beets and they do much better in autumn than they do in the summer. Sometimes the extreme heat of the summer can make them taste bitter but late summer and early fall is a great time for them. The best news is they will keep growing until the ground is completely frozen which doesn’t happen until much later in the winter.
Kale: At this point everyone should be on the kale movement. It’s everywhere you go now! We love kale in our garden for the fall because it grows with leaves so you don’t have to worry about a head forming or the flowers shriveling up. The fall actually helps when it comes to the texture and flavor of the kale from your garden.
Radishes: Now there can be a ton of issues when it comes to trying to plant radishes in the spring but 99% of those issues are alleviated when you plant them in the fall. They do the best in cool, moist soil and love to grow fast so keep your eye on them.
Spinach: Similar to radishes, there are a lot of problems with growing spinach that you get to avoid when you grow it in the fall. A lot of time people complain that the spinach starts to wilt before it is even big enough to pick and eat. However, by growing in the fall you get to avoid that and it only takes about 30 days to blossom. The best news is you can continue growing it in the winter.
Peas: Had enough with our green vegetables yet? Well, don’t forget about the peas! They also love the cool weather. Make sure you protect them against the little bit of sun there is in the fall and give them extra water than you do your other vegetables.
