    What vegetables are you planting this fall?

    Here in MD, we planted kale, spinach, Swiss chard, radishes, beets and turnips. I was wondering what everybody else is growing.

    I am going to plant Pak Choi, spinach, beetroot, and lettuce. I like Pak Choi very much and even during the winter they survive. I planted beans, runner beans and tomatoes and I am harvesting them at present time. I am lucky with climbing beans this year.

      Pak Choi! Yes, I've heard other gardeners talk about that as a good fall/winter veg. Wonder if I still have time to plant that here. Probably!

    Hey Jill
    It's too damned hot in Florida to start anything in the ground, yesterday it hit 98 and humid. However, I have grow lights inside so I have started all my cool weather crops, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kohlrabi, rutabagas, romanesco and kale plus a lot of onions. When the weather cools I'll add carrots, parsnips lettuce and spinach. I'm hoping that by starting this early I can get in two or three crops before next summer.
    I finally found a way to keep my veggies away from critters, summer weight Remay blankets, last year critters ate all my broccoli etc.

      Lee, I used Remay last winter & plan to use it this year, too. I did have some trouble with squirrels peeling it back & had to be vigilant.

    In MO, I will be overwintering garlic, potatoes, and then also planting under cold frames: spinach, mesclun mix, various herbs, carrots, beets, scallions, and peas.

    I also have just built a small greenhouse so I want to try to see if I can get cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower to grow through the winter.

      Glad you wrote in--your list is a great reminder to overwinter some herbs, like cilantro & parsley. Sounds like you're going to have a great garden!

    Oh man, where to being... Okra, peas, green beans, soy beans, Roma tomatoes, sugar pumpkins, spaghetti squash, zucchini, corn, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, spinach, egg plant, and the list goes on. I am in Texas, so this allows for is to be planting some warmer weather veggies. We also have a few greenhouses to help with the plants who need to stay warm when the cold weather sets in. Going to start planting right now.

    Here in Brazil it is almost spring, and I planted some tomatoes and transplanted a pepper plant today. Nothing else will survive during the summer. I grow most of the crops that you consider summer crops during the winter, and unfortunately am not able to plant those things you are putting in the ground in MD at the moment.
    (Even most of the fruit trees, like cashew, bear in the spring or early summer. About the only thing that produces year round is the coconut.)
    I mostly just checked in to read the answers. It sounds like you have some great gardeners up there!

      No offense but it sounds too warm there for me! (Even here is sometimes too warm.) I guess it's too hot for tomatoes there year round?
