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.
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.
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.
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?
Not for everyone!Tourists like it since the water is always warm, even in the winter,even at night.Some of my neighbors grow veg under shade summer-even saw strawberries last wknd when I was out visiting.

Can you name 20 vegetables in under 2 minutes?On the street that my studio is on, there is a billboard that says, "Can you name 20 vegetables in the next 2 miles?" I think that this is a challenge for many people and wanted to pose the challenge here using 2 minutes instead of miles.

Do you ever crave vegetables?I totally dislike Veganism - I find it full of hypocrisy.But whatever - I sometimes get some truly intense cravings for certain vegetables, and I always greatly enjoy fulfilling those urges.Mostly....I have been craving greens: Mustard greens, turnip greens, collard...

Which do you prefer, Summer or Winter?Summer; most definitely. Swimming and bikinis on the beach become an everyday possibility. It's the season that causes the forest to grow green and full of life. I LOVE summer!
