Many gardeners do not even consider Fall gardening because of the winter frosts that might make an early appearance. On the contrary, Fall gardening will result in excellent vegetables and will extend crops long after spring planted plants are finished. Vegetables produced from Fall gardening are sometimes sweeter and milder than those grow in the summer and offer a brand new taste to the same old veggies.

However, there are some plants that will quit towards the end of summer like snap-beans, summer squash, and cucumbers.

Did You Know? Most weeds are spread by the wind, mulch, soil, birds or over the ground.
