Fall is truly here. We have been enjoying very beautiful days, crisp mornings, and cool evenings. Did you know this is also a great time to garden? There are four great reasons to get started on your garden now.
2. Fewer Pests- The fall garden is not plagued by hordes of caterpillars, borers, or even powdery mildew. Even the mosquito population seems to be diminished.
3. Less Weeding- During the summer, the weeds keep pace with the vegetables, then overtake them in a blinding fury mid-July. During the fall, usually what you plant is what you grow, with minimal weeding, especially if you mulch.
4. Less Work!! All of these advantages add up to less work overall. If you think you don’t like gardening, give fall gardening a try. For some, this is actually their favorite gardening season.
Scatter some turnip seeds, poke a few kale starts in the ground, and enjoy gardening this fall!
