Remember we are in USDA Planting Zone 7Fall is a great time to plant those green vegetables. In our home garden we plant broccoli, collards, savoy cabbage and Chinese cabbage plants in August. Lettuce plants can be planted as well. It is also a good time to sow seed for mixed greens such as kale, mustard and turnip. We should be able to harvest these vegetables through mid-winter.
This is also the time we plant tomato plants in the greenhouse for fall tomatoes. These tomatoes should begin ripening in October and continue through December. Vine ripened tomatoes for Christmas, what a treat.
