As Summer winds down and Fall approaches, many people stop thinking about their vegetable gardens. However, the Fall is a wonderful time to grow and there are a wide range of vegetables that thrive as the weather turns cool.
There are several reasons to keep your garden growing through the fall besides having fresh produce available. Many plants that grow in the fall actually add nutrients back into the soil, especially beans like fava or green beans. Also, having fall plants around is good for the ecosystem and keeps pollinators, good garden bugs and birds in your garden.
